I purchased this at the liquidation sale at Tower Records (No more Tower, Sigh).
Its not a very long film and it doesn’t have much plot. But it is absolutely gorgeous to look at. I especially enjoyed how the subtle love story was used, so in the face that it was easy to miss. The viewer discovers the obvious right along with the heroine. What held this dream together most, was a very sensible Stephanie Leonidas. She had a marvelous look as well, childish but womanly at the same time.
The only thing I could have gone to my grave without witnessing was the scene with characters singing The Carpenters “Close to You”. There are no words to describe how I loathe and abominate that song. It almost ruined the movie for me.
Note to self: In the future, FAST FORWARD that scene. End Note.
