Beautiful, Original and Touching
23 June 2004 | by mary-187See all my reviews

Unique idea, well-executed, screened with an original score performed live by an orchestral group which makes it that much more emotional, charming and touching. Shot on, I believe, a hand-crank 1920's (?)camera for the most part (or perhaps entirely). Even if it weren't so interesting to watch and listen to, the story itself is so charming, uplifting, enlightening, if not a bit heartbreaking, that it alone deserves to be experienced. Loved it, and would see it again in a heartbeat if it were to come back to town. It won several awards, I believe, in one of the San Fransisco film festivals, and I expect is the first of many great films by Milford Thomas. He is a director with a natural talent for both creative film-making and strikingly touching visual storytelling.
