Awesome!!!
27 September 2006 | by The_JihadiSee all my reviews

When i saw this film i personally thought that this movie is one of the best film to come on the screen. The narration of the story especially was fantastic. Michele Maher deserves a TAP on her shoulders for making such a brave and beautiful cinema.

The opening scene where young Grindy (Katie MacNichole) cuts the LOGO of PONCHO jeans and sticks it to her cheap denim and looks herself in the mirror is just superb. Performancewise Katie MacNichole lives her role. She should've been more materialistic though but i guess that's what the script demanded. David Thornton in the role of Rony is just Awesome. He looks cute and refreshing. His acting capabilities reminds me of Sean Penn. Rest other cast in film is equally good and brilliant. Of course the film had some bold performances ever seen.

The camera work of the film is very good. The music of the film is good and does NOT disturbs the narration and the grip of the film. Here's where the victory of Michele Maher is where despite of a DRAMA genre the film keeps you tight and gripping throughout. Somehow i also did not digest the climax at some point. But that was alright. Rest of the film was just fantastic. Being a Film Maker myself i think that every scene of this movie shows the hard work of the Film maker and the cast that went in the making of this film.

A film that is NOT to be MISSED at any cost.
