Goofs

When Alan asks to photograph the family of four, the mother calls her son "Brendan" but the credits list the two characters as "Jonathan's Mother" and "Jonathan" played by Kelly Ryder and her real-life son Brendan Ryder. It appears the actress accidentally called her son by his real name instead of his character's name. See more »

Intense
19 December 2002 | by Iced GuardianSee all my reviews

I wouldn't say this movie is ordinary. There is something about it that makes it stick out of the crowd. Perhaps it is the exquisite camera work, perhaps the intensity and the tempo of it, or maybe merely the fact that the acting performance is excellent. It might be a bit intense at the start, but once you pass the threshold, you get sucked into the story. Anyway it is a good movie, and even if the story is not unique itself, the movie truly is. Watch it, it's worth the money renting.
