An unpretentious little gem
25 July 2001 | by Addie-7See all my reviews

This one sort of snuck up on me. I wasn't expecting anything except to see an embryonic Russell Crowe learning to act, but, hey, he already knew how in this, his first leading role. He was utterly believable -- and touching -- as the potential loser in a love triangle. Both of the other leads were very fine also. The photography wasn't as intense as I would have liked --[some of the scenes look a bit washed out] -- but other than that, it is a fine little film.
