Editorial Reviews

Inspired by a true story, "Transatlantic Coffee" is a tale of boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl...only the boy is a 41 year old clown, the girl, a teenage stripper from London. Alex is battling bleak circumstances within his version of a hostile world. However, his outlook evolves with the emergence of the young, sharp and adventurous, Mandie. The oddball duo embrace each other for who they are, until Alex's secret trauma bubbles to the surface, leaving for a climax that should not be missed.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

From the first few seconds into the opening sequence of Transatlantic Coffee, I was hooked. The beautiful shots, the soulful melody of Alix Paige and expert use of lighting all blend together perfectly in setting the tone for this wonderful New York original.

We notice straight away that the man sat in a carefree New York City blues bar is troubled. His edgy disposition accompanied by jarring images of distant or recent memories flash on and off screen against the tempo of the music, portrays a man burdened with repressed thoughts that are invading his mind. As the opening sequence ends with a very high pitched drawn out noise, a speeding train races past a block of apartments, sharply bringing us back to Alex's morose reality.

The film begins quite slowly, establishing Alex (Kevin Pinassi) as a depressive, drunken man whose choice of employment, (providing entertainment as a clown), contrasts with his disdain for life and sullen nature. His longing desire to find someone that will allow him to escape from the constant loneliness he has submitted himself to, is where his story begins.
Over the course of this film, we're given the opportunity to tread in the footsteps of this lonely man's quest to feel love again. Set just a month after 9/11, Alex's story serves as a metaphor for the trauma New York citizens dealt with after the attack. The city itself; grey and in stasis, Alex also seems somewhat out of touch from reality. His hostility towards life, towards his family and his only friend are a result of his disconnection from society.

Early into the film we discover Alex has met a teenage girl from London online and has asked her to stay with him in The Big Apple.

It's a shame that most people will not be able to enjoy this gem in a theater, but the DVD is still well worth the price (especially since you'll want to watch the film a couple of times). The performances by the two leads (Kevin Pinassi and Rachel Marie Lewis) were superb, and the visuals and soundtrack add another layer of depth to a great film.

The story centers around a sad man's search to recapture happiness through his friendship with a young woman. It's a pretty dark tale, which is why it's well suited for a theater, but pick a rainy day or quiet evening and watch this film with someone else because you'll want to talk about it immediately.

From the writing to the directing and all the way down to the acting, this is a great looking and important film. Really enjoyed the music, the New York scenery, and the dark writing. Of course smaller movies like this won't be for everyone, and don't be fooled it's not so much a comedy as it is a dark dramatic movie. I don't know why it's written as a Comedy in some places. We may have laughed a handful of times the rest we were really moved and sad. I like this director and see he has another movie coming out.

This film had me from the start. It was easy to relate to the characters and their individual situations. Like all great films it kept me thinking. But there was an angle that caught me off guard and ultimately left me feeling snookered. This alone would have been worth the price, even if I had not enjoyed the film in it's entirety. BRAVO...

This film has nothing to do with coffee. It's a love story wrapped in mystery, about two dysfunctional people who fall in love via the internet. The twist at the end makes watching this entire 'dramady' to it's conclusion a must.

Just finished the movie. Excellent performances by the two main
characters. Soundtrack was great. Angel Eyes is one of my favorite
standards. I loved that Mandie wore Doc Martens. I love that they went
to Poughkeepsie, and you guys actually shot there. (My Hometown!) Love
the scene when they first get back to the apartment and talk about the
power of music. One of my groups is the performing the track in which
they are dancing too. I was pleased to see where you guys chose to use
our song. The entire scene is Wonderful. As a musician I loved how
music played a huge part in the film. Especially Jazz. I definitely see
why the film won soo many awards.
