Trivia

While shooting the scene in the art gallery, the film crew had to contend with an annoyed upstairs neighbor who protested the intrusion by stomping his feet on the floor. His persistent efforts resulted in minor damage to one of the pictures hanging on the wall. See more »

Goofs

Jonathan and Raoul smoke cigarettes in the bar where Raoul works. The bar is clearly still open as there is another patron sitting at the bar. It became illegal to smoke in bars and restaurants in Los Angeles in 1998 (the film was made in 2011), but they both behave as if it was perfectly legal. See more »

A visual treat and intelligence in every frame
4 February 2012 | by howardroark_900See all my reviews

In the world of never ending clichés and re writes of similar scripts and screenplays with only character changes, 'August' is a true summer day. It felt like the first day of summer holidays after a year long of school.

It's amalgamation of east and west is brilliant. The world view director holds and the complexity of modern relationship in the time of economic recession is very thoughtful. It's a story for all of us, haven't we all wanted something we lost or left behind? I have never seen more synchronized screen play, visual treatment and music. All come together to progress the story. 'Synchronicity'- If you have seen the movie, you will understand why I used this word here! For those who have watched it, I can see you smiling! Yes Eldar! It is all about Synchronicity and your movie is one of the greatest I have seen! Hope you do more movies and have a great future.
