I've never written a comment for a film before and this was the first Hal Hartley film I've seen. I was absolutely blown away by how good it was. It was a very distinctive style and the dialogue was unrealistic but this was intentional and completely added to the film. The accompanying soundtrack was absolutely perfect and the whole thing fitted together seamlessly. Although it dealt with telling almost a fairytale story, there were also much wider issues about the banality and conformity of life in the city. In this sense, it was very acerbic and would hopefully make people think if only it could be shown to a wider audience. It is a tragedy that the only people who will watch this movie are a few independent movie buffs because there is so much that is good about it.
