Pool, The

Rating = B

It's a narrative film based on a story by co-screenplay writer Randy Russell and directed by documentary film maker Chris Smith. It has a very documentary feel and look, which is informative about Goa India where the story takes place and the lives people live there. Most of the actors are non-professionals, which works quite well and adds to the documentary feel. The film is a little slow and the story is simple (but not obvious). Altogether, it works quite well.

We saw the film at the Cinema 21 on NW 21st in Portland, OR, and I recommend patronizing this fine one-screen theater.
