did anyone do it? Is it computer safe? I can watch with the sound off. I often view Keanu's movies in slo mo and then there is no sound. SK's is so loaded with close ups it's wonderful to watch that way.

Got part 1-3, but got invalid link for part 4. Can't access 1-3 now anymore either. Looks like they removed it, probably because of copyright issues.

The cupcake scene is in part 1. Don't need any dialogue for that. :-)


EDIT : Link seems to be working again, must have been a glitch on my side.

watched it.
It's a little indie movie, with a sixties look and feel to it. and/or a nineties handheld camera sort of thing. a bit of both, I guess.
It's a story about three lost souls and the interactions between them. About a guy who's a 'fixer' and who points the camera at the girls and himself in an attempt to reveal their true selves and fix them -because something magic happens when you look - and you're looked at- through a lens...

Sorry to disappoint you, ink and Adrianna, but the little film is not the depraved thing the synopsis promised it to be. It's just... sad.

I can see why he wanted to be part of this. But I can also see why the film doesn't find distributors. It's not today's cup of feelgood soda. On the contrary.

yeah, some of the photos aren't from the movie; I think they are older publicity photos of each actor.

I don't know, Luca but I can't either. It was such a verbal film, I really want to know what was said. I mean, I just sat and watched a whole movie in an incomprehensible language and was still riveted by Keanu. But, I still really want to know what was going on between the three characters, K's character and the blonde girl were particularly intriguing. The other girl seemed more annoying and cliched.

I was also really excited to see Sarita Choudhary's name in the credits, but disappointed that she didn't have more screen time. It's a crime to underuse her like that. I enjoyed that scene with her and Keanu. The tension and chemistry was palpable, despite not knowing what they were talking about (now that's some good acting!). They're both veterans, and now I want to see them together in a film even more! His next love interest perhaps? :)

The end credits were so cute, Keanu singing (flat and off key :) ...and did you guys notice that the photo that guy was holding up looked like Keanu's 1993 mugshot? I laughed out loud at that.

Thank you so much for the link tini!

It's definitely got a sorrowful and somewhat seedy undertone ( the bathroom bj scene made me physically cringe), but it seems like there was some kind of resolution at the end, no? It's so funny to be discussing a movie purely on the physical expressions of the actors and not on the dialogue, quite an interesting exercise actually!

I didn`t want to download the film,cause I decided to wait for the English version.But I saw a few screencaps on the internet and had an impression that Keanu looked very thin and unhealthy there.

He's thin but he doesn't look unhealthy in my opinion. Just...troubled and morose lol. Anyway, you've got a lot more self-control than I have, Chiara! I just had to look at him, couldn't resist at all!

I really want to know what was said.

me too :(

I guess Violet (the other girl) was putting on an act to hide her true feelings. And John is so dazed, confused and conflicted ... until he gets that camera. And suddenly a fourth character is introduced into their little menage a trois. The power center shifts; the one who holds the camera holds the power. He gets the courage to ask questions; the girls answer because it's just a game, right, they're just pretending in front of the camera; it's the camera who watches them, not John the driver... until it's not.
The dialogue is gdamned important and not being able to understand is pissing me off royally.

Yes, I noticed that photo :) And the black-and-white photos of K and the girls :)

But I'm the luckiest guy on the Lower East Side
Because I've got wheels and you want to go for a ride

oh, the irony...

... I think I'm falling in love with this little movie.
