Greetings from Amsterdam,
Our first screening, the int'l debute, was packed--huge audience, great crowd, they all seemed to really like the movie. However I realized, for the first time, that the film has an incredible amount of slang language. Bill and Libby especially, they all have their own way of speaking-- so a lot of moments that I always laugh at were a bit confusing to audiece members that speak English as a second language. But it really was a great success, everyone was very nice.
The questions ranged from why I didn't show more of the nurses aids (good point) to the emotion and feelings it brought, especially within the context of one's own elderly family members (glad we did something right). Later in the night, a woman came up to me and said "excellent film" but did you ever think of not shaking the camera so much? Haha.
We got a huge review in a paper today--although I have no idea what it says and am trying to find out. And online I have found a couple more reviews:
