Great Movie
20 March 2006 | by perthcomicSee all my reviews

One of the best foreign films I have seen in a long time. Happened to catch it on sbs late at night and was captivated by the performances. Great actors with a well thought out script. A really universal story that avoided colloquialisms that seem to be the sort of gimmick needed to get independent funding. Its a shame that the Australian film industry can't capture this sort of authenticity - this is the sort of film we should be making over here.

I don't know anything about the actors or directors involved, but I will definitely be seeking out more of their work in the future. The use of Soul Coughing's "True Dreams of Wichita" over the final credits was also perfection. See this movie. I loved it.
