  • José Neves's rating of the film Sweet Love, Bitter

    The music, by the great Mal Waldron, ensures a magnificent soundtrack. A film strictly "indie," before this concept become a fashionable franchising, which follows (and it's a consequence) Lionel Rigosin, "The Connection" and "Shadows", ie righteous and liberating films, where jazz meets "le mal de vivre" generating a tender complicity. The scent of amateurism accentuates it.
