Trivia

Over half of the film was destroyed by lab error, re-shot, and then destroyed by lab error again. This almost ended the production. Finally, however, the scenes were re-shot one more time, processed by a different lab, and the film was completed. See more »

User Reviews

A "liberating and emotionally striking" film, according to VARIETY.
8 December 2004 | by filminfo1See all my reviews

VARIETY describes this film as "brilliant ... unpredictable sorties into words and ideas at their most liberating and emotionally striking." The film is a love story about writers, and about the use and abuse of language.

A man falls in love with a novelist after reading one of her books. He finds her in a coffeehouse where she writes and he tries to start a relationship with her. To do this, he brings two short stories that he's written in response to her novel. At first, she's very reluctant to read or listen to the stories, but he eventually convinces her. When he begins to read the stories, the film opens up into the unique world that he describes (and the style changes from black and white to color). The film then follows what happens between this man and the novelist, and what their relationship becomes. At the same time, as a counterpoint, the film follows the relationships of various regulars who frequent the coffeehouse.
