The Sweet Hereafter

I watched The Sweet Hereafter over the weekend. I quite liked it. The scenery was cold and beautiful. The characters were subtle and interesting. In both those aspects, it reminded me of The Shipping News which I just loved. I really liked how it twisted in the tale of the Pied Piper throughout the film.

I think this film is gonna haunt me (in a good way) for a while. I may have to pick up the book someday soon.

Atom Egoyan is an incredible director. If you liked this movie, you will probably like his other ones. Some of my favorites are Ararat, Felicia's Journey, Exotica, and Calendar.
