    Well I dozed off more times than I care to say... gorgeous piece of cinema, but it take more than that to keep me engaged. Made me long for Scorsese's "The Age of Innocence" which had both the beauty & captivating story.

      You were not alone in the doze! Beautiful, but challenging to the consciousness.

    Hi Melfi - if you don't mind I'd like to host the Spanish film "Talk To Her" showing this Friday.

      Forgot to say thanks for uploading the poster. I think the concept for this movie - a single 99-minute shot - is a cool idea.
