Look Both Ways

DVD review from Movie Man Mike

Look Both Ways: (B+): This is a heart-warming independent Australian film. It’s a story of two people who see tragedy all around them. Nick is a photo-journalist who is diagnosed with testicular cancer, which has metastasized. Meryl is an artist, who has just returned home from her father’s funeral. Throughout the story cartoonish images from the characters’ minds flash onto the screen, bringing a very artsy flavor to the film. The story is probably summed up by Nick’s mother who says that every person must find his own way of learning to face and live with death. This is a rental that is worth the price. Note: Because of the accents, it took some time for my ear to become attuned to the dialogue.
