The dialogue is cumbersome, the simpering soundtrack and editing more so.
May 2, 2002
We get light showers of emotion a couple of times, but then -- strangely -- these wane to an inconsistent and ultimately unsatisfying drizzle.

[Janey] forgets about her other obligations, leading to a tragedy which is somehow guessable from the first few minutes, maybe because it echoes the by now intolerable morbidity of so many recent movies.
May 17, 2002
Freights a young girl's self-destructive eagerness to lose her virginity with so much danger and even horror that it's as if the events were trying to make up for the film's previous lack of drama.

Before it rains, clouds cover the sky and hint at the coming storm. Jeffs fully captures that feeling of anticipation.

April 29, 2002
A master work in miniature, an unsentimental yet not unsympathetic portrait of a family falling apart in slow motion.

Jeffs' meticulous framing nicely counterpoints all the messy turmoil, and her screenplay flows with the cadences of life.
July 9, 2002
Rain is so slight that it almost isn't there, but these performers deftly approximate the sensation of having a craving for someone.

May 4, 2002
A beguiling and hyper-sensitive anatomy of a hurting family who, lacking openness and trust, fail to communicate.
May 25, 2002
a lyrically moody, poetically foreboding coming of age tale
