Stand Clear Of The Closing Doors Quotes
|Ricardo Sr.:||One of the most honest films about NYC that I have ever seen. The film also explores the very nature of perception itself through a moving tale of a young boy lost and a desperate mother in pursuit. The performances are sublime and graceful; the direction is non-intrusive yet dazzling - I can not recommend this film enough.|
