    Gorgeous film and an outstanding performance by Chuck McCann. The performances remain with you long after viewing.

    What an emotional roller coast ride ... I am always in awe of films that manage capture the beauty and tragedy of the nature of life in equal measures, making us want to live life to its fullest while being aware of the frail nature of all things that surround us, hold us together and make us get up in the morning and keep us awake at night. The performances are incredible and kudos goes out to the casting director for choosing the perfect actors and actresses without keeping one eye out on the Hollywood league and its ever-numbing lust for superficial beauty and style. A fantastic film ... a true masterpiece.
