  1. Anthony De Luca's rating of the film Bare Essence of Life

    2.6 I was irritated by the erratic behaviour of lead male character, especially in the first 45 minutes before I got a handle on him. Kudos to the little sister double act. Their comedy skit was the funniest thing in the movie.

  2. katiemuffett's rating of the film Bare Essence of Life

    While my only criticism is that the editing could've used a little work, the show-don't-tellness of the filming can get downright confusing because of the story. However the heart, nostalgia and quirky bittersweet tone is consistent and left me feeling fond of all the characters.
