A simple story told with the care and attention it deserves
23 February 2011 | by cee_dillSee all my reviews

Sometimes it seems difficult for filmmakers to tell a straightforward story without a hint of irony, but this movie does that and does it very well.

Because the story itself is very simple, the directing, cinematography and acting have to do a lot of the heavy lifting, but Dan Masucci obviously has the right eye and assembled the correct cast to pull it off. The actors never seem to be reading from a page and obviously have a strong grasp of their characters. The final letter written by the mother was so tenderly written and well delivered that I choked up. And little touches like seeing fireworks light up James's face from above while explosions light up the clouds from underneath as his mother flies over really add up to a superb film.

Congratulations for not hiding a beautiful sentiment behind gimmicks. I look forward to more.
