tried hard and failed
This film was a winner at three different film festivals and it is incredibly difficult to see why. The story was not terrible but rather formulaic therefore if it had been made better it could have been a hit. However the acting, the filming, the lighting, the editing all fall miserably short. Whilst I understand it was made on a small budget it reminded me of a bad eighties TV-movie rather than an award winning independent film from the late nineties. It is not the worst film I have ever seen but rather a film that was incredibly mundane a veritable a non-entity. Even simply spending three dollars to see it was much too much and sitting through until the end was a fabulous sleep inducer. You will find certain moments within the film amusing and a breath of fresh air but in the long run it is not memorable at all.
