At 25 minutes, this film is one of the most honest, stirring dramas in the genre. The story of two brothers who are locked in a timeless dance of interlocking destinies. The story effectively updates and makes relevant for today's audiences the Jean Paul Sartre theories referenced by the title. The two leads, Demetrius Navarro and Mark Adair Rios, turn in performances that are at times heart wrenching, or funny, or steely. Amy Vincent's cinematography is as beautiful as her work in Eve's Bayou, but much more appropriately gritty for this urban environment. Score by Michael Giacchino is fitting and foreshadows his later work. Script is tight the film is beautiful paced. A must see if you can find it.
