Brilliant, Vibrant, Original and more great adjectives
16 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Being familiar with Danny Boyle's filmography, I was surprised to see him such a tame subject matter. A street poet who takes in a stray girl. However, I soon learned there was nothing tame about this film which I saw last night at the Toronto International Film Festival. I cannot get the music out of my head, not because it was particularly good, but because like the film it was daring, original, energetic and truthful.
