  I read some comments about this film that tended to 'gush' over it certainly more than I will... but I did like it. Certainly its simplistic Indie roots and production limitations only ingratiated me to give the production more of a chance to develop. I do think the tag lines focusing specifically on 9/11 are a bit of a stretch - the focus of the story could have been set at anytime or place. I assume this could be made into a very complete stage play as it is strongly character driven with minimal locations required. We only really meet four major characters - and how the death of a girl, Lori Riga, is remembered by her brother, her fiancÚ and his would be new love interest (very brief), and a stranger - a lawyer - who met her on the fateful day in question. It is quite moving and finishes exceptionally well. Yes, I suspect many will get something out of this with the decent performances (by the leads) and a devastatingly sharp and poignant finale.

Comments:

This Indie production shows it filming limitations and is subject to a weak DVD transfer. It is anamorphic but non-progressive (see 'combing' example in last capture). Where a director commentary would have seemed quite appropriate - the only extra feature is a slideshow gallery of production photos. Colors are a shade weak, tending to bleed a bit and dark scenes are very dark but I have no reason to suspect that this is any different than the way one would have looked theatrically. I would say in its defense that it is very typical of a video-shot Indie film. I find the price a little high for what you are getting digitally speaking, but we do like to encourage independent film and feel this is a far superior effort than many we have seen in the past. This film will stay with you and for that alone it should be checked out.
