CD Reviews

Great movie......but not for big $$$$
C. Hayles | Dallas, TX USA | 05/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I absolutely love this movie, so it was a shock to see the DVD being sold for outrageous prices! No matter how rare it is. So not to take anyone away from Amazon, I myself am a huge addict of this site. However, I feel obligated to tell you how to get this movie without having to deplete your savings account. Target's WEBSITE has the DVD, although they say it will be available to be shipped in 4-8 weeks. I don't know about you, but I'd rather wait a month or two to get it than spend close too or OVER a hundred dollars.

I'm sorry Amazon.com, I love you! I just dislike some of your sellers price gouging."
Reality vs Fantasy

"This is a warm, sweet film. Like many others, I saw it, quite by accident, on cable. I've since bought the DVD and am not disappointed. This small, independent film by James F.Robinson is brilliant in concept and delivery. Right off the bat, there are repeated references to Verdi's "La Traviata", the ultimate romantic tragic opera. Things only get better, smarter and more clever. Brendon Fraser is always charming, with his child-like wish for perfection; the rest of the cast handles their roles with aplomb; Ann Magnusen is hard as nails, Tobe Huss as Cameron is the perfect innocent friend, and the great Celeste Holm is there as the granny, delivering the best line in the film: "(He's) redefining an imperfect world in a perfect way". She's crazy as a fox, and totally endearing. The mind-blowing element here is the performance of Joanna Going as Roz, the object of the whole thing. She is perfection...centered and precise in every glance, nuance and delivery. I was very impressed. She deserves a better career, since I haven't really heard of her since. A real talent. The choices of music are also excellent, in addition to the original music of Paul Mills. A rendering of "The Wee Small Hours of the Morning" (performed by Madeleine Peyroux) is most effecive, as well as the final title song, sung by Rita Springer. This is a loving display of (almost) craziness, lovingly presented by a fine director and a stellar cast. Cynics among you may not agree, but there are still a few of us out here that think true love is possible. Also, stay tuned...after the credits are over, there's a dilightful little "stinger". What a fine film! UPDATE: 12-12-06... I just checked this out to buy a copy for a friend. I can't believe it's not available without paying over $100. That's nuts."
Still Breathing is a Breath of Fresh Air in Romance Films
J. Whitford | Falls Church, VA USA | 04/30/2004

"First time director James F. Robinson gives us a rare treat - a beautiful romance that both men and women can enjoy. I remember going to see this film when it was in theaters. I was totally surprised by the soundtrack, script and characters. The director showed off San Antonio and LA in their best colors, and created a soundtrack that is a real keeper.

The story is about a woman con artist (Joanna Goings) who has given up on love and a performance artist (Brendan Fraser) who only believes in unconditional love. They collide in their nightly dreams (before they even meet) and in their waking hours. Both characters and their friends are true to form.

Brendan Fraser's family and friends are really out there artistically, and Joanna Goings associates are out and out thieves. The transformation Joanna goes through to finally accept unconditional love and ultimately accept herself in a relationship with Brendan Fraser is truly heartwarming.

This is a movie to be savored on a rainy day when you are curled up on the couch alone or with your honey. Be forewarned. Once you get the movie, you will want the original movie soundtrack. The heady slow mix of jazz and sweet classical music is downright intoxicating.
