Audience Reviews for Signs & Wonders

Even though it was critically panned, I can't say that I didn't enjoy this film. There is tremendously good interplay between the leads and heavy good drama.

A second viewing might be warranted to do justice to all the subtle nuances present in this flick, but mostly I think this psychological drama is just a bit too plodding.

I like it.As a cult art-house it doesn't fail,trifling and playfully iconoclastic.Greece as a tourist/underground combination.We have a Rambling/Skarsgard clash and to be honest,Katalifos' inspiring performance steals the show.Nossiter moves around like a rat amongst cats' dormitories carrying out his passion for film-making too much I think.
