More complex than you would think
10 February 2005 | by mgleezSee all my reviews

I saw this film at a IFP Spirt Award screening. From the description I was not expecting much. This was not a great movie but it was well constructed. The acting was simple, like it was a documentary. It moves a little slowly. Have patience. Each of the three stories had insightful moments. How they intersect is unexpected. The realistic dialog was rich and funny. Don Epifanio's laugh is unnerving and his partner is a hoot. The low budget look does not help the film but is not distracting either. None of the actors are Hollywood beauties and I liked that. As we are suppose to, I felt sorry for Pedro and his lame attempts to accomplish his task. Worth seeing if you like indy films.
