Storyline

When a marriage of convenience becomes the real thing, Joe moves his pregnant French wife to a tenement building on New York's Lower East Side. The street is like a war zone with none of the nostalgic appeal that Joe remembers from tales of his immigrant grandparents arriving in the same neighborhood with a new life. This is the urban frontier filled with comic mixture of gentrifies, homeboys, dealers and local residents simply bent on staying a float. Written by Anonymous

It's all in the cutting
21 February 2007 | by tomm-25See all my reviews

The two major attractions of this marvelous film are:

1.) the editing... the folding of time into an elaborate "Memento"-like structure is deliciously mystifying, and yet - it all hangs together quite well from the outset, and

2.) the characterizations... and I DO mean "caracters." This is a feast of actors making the most and best of some VERY juicy roles.

The direction and camera-work are all top-notch, too. No passive entertainment, this... it takes a bit of patience and a positive expectation that is well-rewarded to get through the first twenty minutes. I was interested to see that John Malkovich was one of the producers. This film is so HIM!
