Writer-director Hal Hartley makes as much as he can of a bold if limited idea, filming the same story three times on a different location – New York, Berlin, then Tokyo – with a different viewpoint.
Hartley’s 1995 movie is often funny and a little cult treat, it will delight all his small, but loyal legion of loyal fans.
Perhaps you could afford to snooze during the middle re-telling of the tale and not miss very much. But there is an excellent cast to help keep you awake: Martin Donovan, Robert Burke, Parker Posey, Bill Sage, Michael Imperioli, Elina Löwensohn, Dominik Bender, Erica Gimple, Hannah Sullivan, Geno Lechner, Harold Perrineau Jr and Maria Schrader.
