Rich with emotion. Immersive and compelling.
23 June 2003 | by mphatzSee all my reviews

This film is not so much about the story, or even about the characters that populate its world. Rather, it captures a moment in time and the emotions of the people who are passing through it.

The 'characters' never seem contrived because they're just people, like ones you've met, maybe a close friend or a family member. The viewer feels present during the dialogue, partly because of the cast seems so comfortable in front of the camera, and partly because of the intimate shooting style.

Don't look for any glitz or glamour in this film, just emotional honesty and a glimpse of world that's nothing like your own, and yet somehow the same. See it. Don't be afraid.
