New Yorkers might find much to dislike about this movie, which hails as its moment of truth the starta through which gentrification is rooted in the Lower East Side of New York City. Non-New Yorkers will not be compelled to see much of anything in the movie as well, where Joel Rose's novel is translated into a script just as off beat and loud, rather excessively so, dismissing any "politics" (in the more humble sense of the term), any ethnic falvor, any whimsical characters or traditional ties that keep New York's tension well-taut. Problem is the movie attempts to build its narrative so as to evolve unto such themes and it fails miserably, in a stilted, uncompromisingly cartoonish portrait that has hardly any laughter to incite while it does all it can to tickle the psychosis of a city in flux. The young married couple (David Krumholts and Clara Bellar) represent a third generation Jewish New Yorker and a new Easter European illegal immigrant who seeks marriage for papers. The proposition becomes unexplicably a romance that crawls through the scene of a lower East Side tenement. The husband contends with an array of characters that over-engage the neurotic tendencies of ethnic groups, phobias thereby elicited, and consummate ethical equivocations. Nothing in this movie has redemptive properties and its aweful mess only clears up at the end when you feel like asking for your tme back. Independent films on this scene have been very effective as of late, "Raising Victor Vargas", "Real Women Have Curves", "Washington Heights", "Kids", "Manito", "All Night Bodega" and "Bella" confront similar issues without claiming to trace the historical steps that expose stunted growth within a narrative premise, with abundantly more success. Not to mention the fact that the here reviewed movie fails in the while.Read more ›
