step backwards
2 August 2002 | by VANCELEESee all my reviews

when i saw this film i was reminded of what my 7th grade english teacher taught me and that was every story needs a conflict. i mean there is so little of a plot, instead what you see is moods and atmospheres. i counted maybe one scene were there was any intensity at all, other than that it was just watching a cute little girl pout and smile.
