  • beautiful movie : 3 stories in one, deep and moving
  • The bleak though hauntingly beautiful imagery captures the essence of the storyline. The pacing, while deliberate, suits the plot and flashbacks are judiciously employed to advance the story. Perhaps the reason for the lack of commercial success lies in negative traits within the main characters. Seemingly, only Abel Grey (Edward Burns)is capable of putting the pieces together and giving us the resolution we as viewers so badly need as the movie draws to a close.
  • Not unlike most other mediocre Canadian productions. The only reason they were produced in the first place is because of government grants, but the reality is they, including this film are not worth the time or effort. When the Candian government will give an artist a grant to produce a painting using his own vomit as the medium, that about says it all about our government`s waste of taxpayer`s money to produce something just because the CRTC say their needs to be a certain amount of Canadian content. I say let these producers use their own money for a change, instead of leaching off the public purse!
