This is not just another movie...
13 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is not a movie that you sit down, watch quietly and then forget about. I just wish to clarify this now. Animated discussions amongst my friends were abound following the screening of this film and to date they are continuing.

I saw this film in the presence of a group of friends, however whilst watching, was unaware of their proximity. From the beginning I was drawn in to the story and remained as such until the credits began to roll.

The film focuses on the relationship between four brothers who, although obviously connected, are of different personalities and spheres of existence. We see into their psyches for brief moments and come to understand their places within the family and the world in which they have carved their niche.

All the actors perform superbly and with a fluidity that enhances the subtext of the dialogue. In particular, Gale Harold (of Showtime's Queer as Folk), in an inspired performance, conveys the vulnerability of his character openly and sometimes, heartbreakingly to the audience.

The director, producer and editor of this movie have much to be proud of, as unlike most films nowadays, all the answers are not displayed to the audience with neon lights flashing. They are carefully hidden within the storyline and camera angles. This aura of mystery seeps through to the audience who find themselves captivated and curious, empathizing with the characters through their own experiences and needing to know how it will all end.

This is a film that I could watch more than once, knowing that new feelings and insights could be gained with each viewing. My only wish... to view this movie again.
