I gave it a 4 (out of 5) for the audience prize at the festival...
9 May 2003 | by Jude-21See all my reviews

I have just seen the movie at the Tribeca Film Festival. First of all, I would like to say to the mother of Dov Davidoff that I loved the movie and I thought Dov was awesome. The movie is very original and unpredictable, which in this day is a rarity. The editing is very exciting and the acting is excellent and subtle. Kudos also to perfect casting. The movie is entertaining in the way mystery is built up and in the timing and manner of revelations about the characters. Although I felt an affinity for all the characters, I adored Samantha and thought she did an awesome job of keeping her mysteries and then revealing them so interestingly. The general idea in the movie that life is worth living, and is worth not sleep-walking through, is gently told by wounded parties and therefore lends credence to the message. The movie is maybe slightly too cute in parts (giancarlo looking for the cat), but it is forgivable. In the end, excellent writing and compelling stories told well almost always = a fine product like this.
