What I'm Watching #31

Originally uploaded by Randuwa.
Simon is a Dutch film that tells the story of an unlikely pair of friends who meet and then in a moment of enlightenment are reunited. Between them is a gulf of understanding that they navigate to the benefit and consternation of those around them.

Simon is study of friendship and love. How forgiveness and humor and the unspoken tendrils of passion and compassion bind each of us to one another.

Simon is a story about choices and consequences. It's a story about euthanasia that takes place in both Amsterdam and Asia. And if you are the least bit susceptible to the power of cinema, have a box of Kleenex handy.
