This is a blog for Camberwell Students and Staff to talk about, critique and generally think about the Foundation Film Programme (check out the other blog criticalvoices.blogspot.com)
I absolutely love this film. It is one of the few that I can think of where knowing a little about how it was made adds to a richer understanding. Check out comments on imdb.com, they are very interesting. Ultimately, for me, the film is about the nature of 'reality', 'fiction' and the gaps inbetween, such as 'dreaming'. It is also a very humanistic film with a strong sense of melancholy - although the director claims not to want to manipulate ouremotions through film, it brought a tear to my eye when the man in court confesses his true desires/dreams which are brought out of poverty.
