I'm just writing to alert and remind everybody what really can be done with a "low budget" and independent movie like I think this one is.
I love this movie, it's story, the characters, the performances of the actors. It's all great.
It has a fantastic ending and I recommend everyone to see this movie.
I really think that this type of picture should have more support for being done. It's the "simple" stories like this one that demonstrate the true beauty of the cinema and not the blockbusters that the main industry continues to support.
I'm not saying that those shouldn't be done, because their fun.
I just think that sometimes and more often, they should support the so called low budget movies so that great, fantastic, human, and simple stories like what this movie represents could come out and be seen by all the people.
The fact is that with the low advertisement that is made to this type of movies, at least in my country (I presume that in the States it shouldn't be much more), only the true cinema "buffs" get the chance to find out about them and see them, and not the common person, as it should be from the start.
If you really love cinema, don't forget to see this movie, because it's one of those few movies that ends and makes you keep remind about them, the plot, the simultaneous complexity and simplicity of the characters, and everything else for a long time.
