The film actually breaks with some of the Dogme 95 rules, e.g. the blood used in the car accident scene is 'theatre' blood, there were fantasy sequences shot in Super-8 and also a ThermaCAM has been used. See more »

Another one of those small Euro digital films that explores human emotion so much better than the mega-bucks equivalents from the States.
When a loving couples unity is shattered by a horrific road accident that cripples the boyfriend, the story explores how a moment can destroy a lifetime or create alternate paths. Superbly acted with deep pathos and unflinching torment, I have yet to see a better performance this year of a female lead. You leave the cinema questioning how the happiest moment in your life can be stolen in a blink of an eye. Life is fragile and all too brief. Not a minute should be wasted.
