Movie Reviews

Sad, slow, humble...
D. Kanigan | CT, USA | 10/26/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Tadeo was a famous photographer who turns into a street magician after a haunting accident involving his child hood friend. He learns of a life altering illness which forces him to look back and inward about his relationships, his regrets and his mistakes - and he tries to make amends before he dies.

This is a low budget film that is slow moving and sad however I enjoyed the sweetness and humbleness in Tadeo's relationships with his neighbor, his blind assistant, his ex-wife and his friends.
