User Reviews

 
Quality Art-house Film
23 December 2014 | by brenyleeleeSee all my reviews

All Our Desires, is an exceptional piece of story telling, without telling the story. Dialogue is minimal and ordinarily mundane, as we all generally know it to be in real life; but it's what isn't said that tells this story. It takes a team of truly gifted people to be able to pull off a movie like this, and there are a lot of scenes where the nuances in communication are subtle and not in the least oversold by the actors or the producer. Yes, this is a story that is likely to bring a tear to your eye, and yet it has a poignant depth which makes grief bearable. If you are looking for a gentle yet gripping movie that will speak to the intellectual in you, then this is a must see.
