Love and Suicide- important, touching and genius
3 August 2006 | by ny1974See all my reviews

I saw "Love and Suicide" last week in NYC at the Latino Film Festival and thought it was wonderful. I highly recommend this film to everyone. It is a very important film as well as a touching love story. A story about the power and importance of forgiveness, family, friendship, desperation, making connections, going back to your roots and the beautiful surprises that happen in life. the ending is genius and the acting is superb. Kamar De Los Reyes is an extremely talented and intelligent artist. He will blow you away in this complex role. Luis Moro's writing will stay with you. And Lisa France's directing will leave you feeling as if you were with these characters every step going through some of the most painful and some of the most beautiful moments of their lives. There is one scene in particular which the artists said was all improv that is just phenomenal.
