this movie is special to me for reasons i don't really want to put into words except that it makes me feel completely isolated and makes me feel something else that doesn't lessen every time i rewatch. weird to watch something so woven into toronto though
A well thought-up portait of a person living in a society where she doesn't care about integrating. A lot of time is spent looking at her unmoving face, a barrier between her thoughts and an alien world. This results in an ever-growing patchwork of obvious lies. I still felt something is missing in this movie; the reason might be that it's positioned in-between being personal, realistic and dramatic.
