At the start of the film I was very confused and a bit worried about where this was going to go. It was clear that the director had a very creative imagination and a unique way of telling a story, but it is one of those films that everything all pieces together nicely in the end. There were a couple of scenes which highlighted the low budget side of the film and a couple of cheesy moments, but it was disguised well by the style of the film. I loved the style of the music used, the songs were beautiful and the main cast gave a pretty strong performance, particularly Reiga. She was a very complex character with consistent mood swings, which Sabrina performed really well.
I can understand how some critics may label this film as "odd", but I think you have to be the type to appreciate unique film making in order to appreciate this kind of film. Due to this, I think that is how the film did so well in so many indie festivals. Not only are musicals very rare, it is also a different and lovely piece of storytelling which left a lot of festivals with open arms.
Besides it being a nice little indie musical, it is not the kind of film that will make it to "best seller". However, the film should not go unnoticed and would make the perfect TV movie.
