My heart ached from this moving and honest film-
1 February 2012 | by jruby70See all my reviews

This film is dark and very honest and it moved me very much. I have been a long time fan of Fall, which now seems like a trip to the candy store after getting my heart broken in After Fall, Winter. You can see the years and growth from the director in this one and it is a sadly beautiful look at one's life and how we all hold a lot of pain within ourselves and we should actually share this and be honest about it. It is beautifully shot in Paris, which, like New York always seems to look good on film. There are a great deal of movies filled with fluff, but this movie just gets right to the point. With life and love, things are not always pretty and quite difficult. We can learn something about ourselves in this one. It's romantic, it's brutal, go see this film.
