Compelling, moving, emotional, touching, sad, joyful. I was surprised at how this very adult poetic piece drew me into the inner thoughts and feelings of its chain of protagonists. I was left feeling just how deeply interconnected we all are on an emotional level and how even the seemingly pointless things we do each day can have a profound, if unnoticed, impact on the lives of others. This is a powerful poetic masterpiece. Live consciously!

I saw this when it originally aired on HBO, I saw it again a few times over the next few years, always stuck with me because I liked the pretty dancing mouse. But then I saw it again about two years ago as an adult on some HBO "classic" special. Then I finally fully realized the depth and beauty of this piece. This is a tough movie to track down, I like it that way though, anything worthwhile should require some effort.
