~Lost&Found Review~

A very sad and intriging love story.

From the start of the film I knew that this was going to be exciting. I could tell from the beautiful VOs' and artsy direction that this film shined right from the begining. The script was very well written and the film had a unique romance atmosphere which brought this love story to life.

Great use of music is another aspect that brought this film to life. As the characters explain thier feelings, the films music is what brought the emotion to the screen. The music played a major role is a film like this. The music was well picked and placed.

This film was in a way moderate, and also ingenious with its direction. This film had its' original style of explaining the connection between the two characters. This film is narrated from two point of views which adds double the drama as you witness the thoughts of both people. You really get a sense of how both of the characters feel throughtout the film. The dialogue was well written and the development of the characters is what brought this film extra credit.

Overall, this film was very entertaining, sad, original, romantic, and most of all, a wonderful achievement into romances.

How romantic, and how very tragic.. I loved the way the viewer got pulled into the minds of Helena and Johnny, how the tension built up.. will he.. will he not? Can I.. And then, he does.. there is a moment of pure happiness.. it doesn´t last long.. fantastic and unexpected ending! A great script by Peg, filmed beautifully by you, and great voices and music!(And I just love that cairny in your titles!)

I can't begin to describe how much I thoroughly enjoyed this!
Just simply a wonderful film.
I really enjoyed the back and forth narrative style.This is truely one of your best scripts Pegleg,I love it.And Eyris,you did a magnificent job in putting this all together and meeting(and it appears exceeding)Pegleg's vision.I can't agree more.The look,the atmosphere,the music,and on top of it all the voiceovers.Yes they are very good Peg,and it was nice to finally hear some voiceover work from you Eyris,nicely done:-)
And there's nothing like a great film with a fantastic ending.Truly a splendid film that I simply cannot help but bookmark.

Can I first of all say thank you, this is wonderful version of a script that you really bought to life. You have made the characters Helena and Johnny so real and I'm proud to be associated with this. From the images, and the music to your wonderful VO this movie actually bought a tear to my eye. Thank you thank you and thank you. You have repaid the faith I put in you 100 fold. I even don't mind my own voice and that is rare. I hope this picks up a little following as you deserve some success with your vision. If I could give the movie more than five stars I would.

Excuse me while I take the hook out of my mouth.

Boy, talk about fishing!
You dangled the lure early with the absolutely delightful and realistic dialog. The voice acting was spot on. I could actually see these two characters with those voices.
You felt me strike the bait with the cinematography. Especially the scenes on the train where both characters were just sitting there thinking, yet you filmed it and framed beautifully.
You started reeling me in with the haunting and romantic music that fit this dark, tragic, love story so very well.
You pulled me aboard with a net when I realized how completely involved I was. The characters came alive and stayed true to their motivations. The story itself was captivating. And then...

I was Gutted! By an ending I never saw coming.

Great movie, you two. I hope you enjoy the fish.

A master storyteller and a great film-maker - what a combination. So glad in my little quest for hidden gems movies, I found this one. The colors, the set decoration, lighting, camera work, acting, dialogue, suspense, music - all top notch. Thanks for inviting me into your lair!!

The beginning of this movie makes me wonder how many relationships never begin because of mutual fear of rejection. A good film with an...interesting ending. I liked the overall direction of this as the pace is slow, but the nicely written dialogue keeps the story moving along fine. Some of the choices in scene selection and atmophere were well conceived too. The music was appropriate if unnoticable at times and the VO quality was good.

This was a enjoyabale ride. But I really didnt like the ending. Even tho it was different, it wasnt very connected to the rest of the story. It felt like you did throw away something from me brilliant film with the ending, and therefore your movie dont stand as a rememberable masterpiece, as I half trough really thought it was. Somethin is missing. But all in all, great great job even tho if would be so much better with a more extended ending.

OMG...look at this, I pass on viewing this and now I come back and awards all over it, saying its the best thing since sliced bread, ummm i didnt read that...lol...So how could I resist now and ooops, I just realize how much my head has been in the clouds, I so owed you reviews, I am sorry, I dont know how you got overlooked especially after reading the old reviews, I feel like such a...well why go there...lol...5 stars you might single handed bring me around on the Romance genre. This movie has the bite I like in movies...Ha ha, nudge nudge wink wink. Here I am sitting here praying for a train wreck or a swarm of mutant ninjas and when I gave up all hope, you stick it like your other movie I watch... MY MY you have me more than interested now. I even had thoughts of making the sequel to this and I dont do sequels , especially someone elses movie, but the set up was perfect for the SpinDoctor.And thats why I dont do them, the contrast I would add would ruin a great movie. Congrats on your Win there, and Hey I didnt come because of that, Guilt reason...ehh more humble a reason...I hope you know I am already callin ya my new friend...So I hope that works out...can you feel the craziness yet?

Since the day I started reviewing romances on TMO, I can count on one hand the ones that I actually connected to. This may make me a major romance-sceptic, in a genre that IMO has so often eluded all moviemakers not just here, but in the real world as well. So don�??t feel bad if I have a few honest remarks about this movie that I need to get off my chest. :)

The romance portrayed here, I feel, is a bit manipulative and didn�??t ring true to my ears. There�??s something missing, something that makes movies of this kind transcend its peers. I wanted to like this, but the words and the images were telling me nothing new. The first half of this movie, I felt like I�??ve been told that same story many times recently. Somehow the story missed me, or I missed the story, but halfway through my mind wandered away. This may be due to the repetitive back and forth style, which didn�??t seem to sustain itself after a minute or so. It may also be due to the repetitive words and content of what�??s being said, as no major new information seems to be presented, but instead I felt the same phrase was rehashed over and over, until meaning is dissolved.

I did very much enjoy the camerawork here, and I think that the editing is very polished and engaging. Although I did feel some scene selections to be strange �?? like the meeting in the room in which they shook hands in a business-like manner �?? a bit odd after the preceding thoughts. Also a bit strange is that when they started talking versus their thoughts, the voice quality had little change between those two modes.

I felt these two characters to bit either unrealistic or unlikeable�?� The ending itself was a surprise, but felt disconnected from the rest of the story, maybe too much of a detour.

Sort of Romance horror I think :)

I liked the story and how is was built and told ..the peaceful pace with really great voices and wonderful "dialog" .Also the music suited the feeling in this movie.

A very beautiful movie with a sort of ugly ending for both maincharacters...a really well done movie deserves the 5 solid stars.

You certainly captured the essence of this film, and I could feel Pegleg's spirit if you will, throughout this work. I commend both Pegleg's writing, and your vision. I do, however, have to mention the use of music during the sequence where the man follows her down the street; the music was ominous and I half-expected this romance to turn into a slasher film. If this was intentional, then it worked, but otherwise it tended to hint at a shift in the film's tone. The ending was effectively surprising, but I think it would be even better to linger a tad longer at the last shot, or even end with a zoom out through the window to a night sky and then fade to black. As it is it did seem a trifle abrupt for such a moving finale. But that's just my personal preference and in no way diminishes what you have achieved here. Great job.

You've done a wonderful job, Eyris! Excellent use of the freecam and choice of scenes. You and Peg both did a wonderful job with the VOs, bringing the characters to life. Peg wrote a great script, and you turned it into a great movie, despite the fact that I knew what was coming. :p

I knew you could do it!!!!! Congratulations!!! In particular I enjoyed the thoughts of each character as they saw each other, hearing their desires, and finally seeing the culmination of desire in a surprising way that was SHOCKING!!! What a great team you two made! You are masters of snaring an audience with the most interesting characters! ===K4===

This is an outstanding movie. The charachters were brought to life so well and the whole atmosphere was as intense as it was gripping. The VOs were top notch and the movie is made so well that it puts a lot of other movies to shame. This is very accomplished and you should both be very proud. An excellent job.

Hey thnks for the comment on the movie..but I have a question for you... I have seen other movie makers use music on thier movies I.E. Nick Lachey and there was no problems....I took the movie down but if its cause I forgot to put in the artist I can put that up i just didn't think about it to be honest. I am sorry if this is not the proper space to post this...but i don't know where to post it... BTW I love the Movie Discovery ;)

A very good movie. The VOs were perfect and I'm guessin' this is a defferent version than that script with "cory" and the lady at the bar right? The length was just right and did not bore for a single moment- a #1 Romance! Good job.

Pegleg... This was a great script!
Eyris... You brought the script alive. Your choice of sets, music, costumes and even the blooming weather set the mood perfectly. A very well done. Looking back at your other movies it is easy to say that you get stronger with each one you make.

The story was great. Firstly anyone who has ever dated anyone can relate to whats happening between these two. I had a feeling that something was going to happen, but I have to say that you had me guessing all the way through :-)

A top movie that deserves to do very well.

Great job!

Take care

Wow! That was genuinely most impressive Eyris. The two of you have created a beautiful piece of work here. Clever dialogue, and the VOs delivered it very well indeed. I confess that half way through, I couldn't help but scream at the monitor 'For God's sake speak to her!' - well ... it had a great ending too.
