Did You Know?


The scene where the main characters can't lift the bike onto the roof of the building and instead tie it up with an electrical cord was improvised on the set. Originally, the script called for the bike to be lifted onto the roof with an improvised pulley system (which was supposed to fail, breaking the bike). However, that proved impossible to rig on location, so an alternate scene had to be improvised where parts of the bike were instead stolen. See more »


Murray Bailey: No matter what you do in life, always have a perfect bed and a comfortable pair of shoes, because when you're not in one, you're in the other.

Coulda', Woulda, Shoulda . . .
10 April 2010 | by cheryllynecox-1See all my reviews

I had no preconceived notions about this Tallahassee Film Festival offering when I viewed it last night, but I am always willing to surrender to quirky art and off-beat creativity. I didn't find much of either in "Sneakers and Soul" to be able to recommend it. The best thing about it is its title, and the second best thing is the charming young actress who plays a featured role.

Actually, there are some other entertaining elements. I enjoyed the opening animation although it seemed to introduce the wrong film. The soundtrack is pleasant, too. "Sneakers and Soul" is simply the little movie that tried way too hard to be an art film. It played like a big-budget student film with rich images and artful tableaux, but the dialogue often seemed as contrived as some of the absurd situations.
