..the way this story plays out.. it's a pretty darn good work
8 October 2014 | by bjariasSee all my reviews

Having any long term relationship can become exceptionally complicated when you confuse and expose them by getting 'involved' with another person (or persons).. either just for sex, or to get 'even.' This is a pretty well made and good little film.. the casting is spot-on, each actor in their respective roles are near perfect.. both in their choice for the part, as well as the individual performances (Micaela Ramazzotti is just terrific). It can at times bog down a bit, but it's not a huge distraction. It's not a happy scenario being played out.. and before you reach the end, you have to believe it might end badly for either or both of them. I wrote a major portion of this review before watching the final scenes.. now, having seen the entire film would agree it concludes with the most meaningful outcome.
