This film is a real surprise. It’s got stunning reviews, but still nobody has ever heard of it, let alone seen it. It should have garnered a huge amount of recognition, yet it seems to be slipping into obscurity. This strikes me as grossly unfair. Miramax clearly bought it as part of a predatory attempt to cash in on Central Station, but then inexplicably failed to market it in any meaningful way. Why do distribution companies insist on doing this?
