Horrible and gut-wrenching
7 June 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

NOTE--THIS IS A VERY ADULT FILM. LETTING KIDS SEE THIS FILM IS PROBABLY NOT A GOOD IDEA, THOUGH VIEWING IT WITH AND DISCUSSING THE FILM WITH TEENS MIGHT BE.

This film is about a couple drug addicts who live on the street. However, oddly, instead of a traditional film about homelessness and addiction, the female lead narrates in a bizarre style that is the exact opposite of what you see on film. For example, she talks on and on at the beginning of the film about how great her life is and how things are getting better--but in reality her life simply can't get much worse. Only later in the film does the narration become a bit more depressing, but by the incredibly gut-wrenching conclusion, it once again is happy and looking to a brighter tomorrow.

This is an incredibly depressing and horrible film to watch. I would imagine that many who do see it will probably find themselves crying or choking back tears, as the film makers did a fantastic job of telling the story. From purely a technical viewpoint as well as its ability to convey a story, this is a brilliant film.

However, be forewarned, it is a very, very tough film and one I don't recommend to kids. Perhaps, though, this WOULD be a great film to show addicts and especially casual users who think drugs can be purely recreational--I can't imagine a better and more sobering wake up call!

Final verdict--brilliant but horrible.
