Paul Bettany highly regards the help Paula Huidobro gave in getting the film shots Paul felt were necessary in telling the story, especially the different aspect ratios during the different parts of the film. See more »
When Tahir pulls Hannah off the fence on the bridge and they both struggle on the ground, in the far away shot his arm is around her neck, but in the next instant in the closeup shot his arm is around her chest/torso. See more »
Bettany doesn't pull any punches with this film, so don't expect some feel-good love story, and expect to feel really good about yourself when the final credits roll. This is a really nice piece of work, that speaks to how people end-up on the street, and why they stay; even if they decide to leave.
This piece is intended to make you re-think your views on homeless street people, and in my book does a really nice job. The film doesn't try to place the blame on anyone, which I really think brings the authenticity through.
I personally have not seen another motion picture that brought such resolution in my mind about street addicts; why they do it, how they got there, and what really our their choices once they partake.
