The first film in the Seto language in the world speaks about the brightest heroine of a small people, the folk singer Hilana Taarka, a woman who lived her whole life as an outcast in a small chimney-less hut; as an unmarried mother of children in poverty, begging her bread, doing odd jobs and singing. She always sang the truth, sometimes bitter, sometimes funny, sometimes cruel. She was feared, despised and coveted. Taarka sang throughout her remarkable life, throughout her fate, from a small Seto village to international fame. And she sang well. Really well. Taarka became the Mother of the Song, a legend. But as a woman, as a member of the community, the Seto people never really accepted her. Taarka - a despised woman and a worshiped singer.

They have a hard time making ends meet to fix it up but they do their best and fix up one apartment at a time. They let a business man of sorts rent out the last room and he turns out to be the worst tenant ever. The tenant threatens both the couple's investment and their relationship."Is that your man walk?""It's the only walk I have."John Schlesinger, director of Midnight Cowboy, Marathon Man, Darling, The Next Best Thing, The Falcon and the Snowman, Eye for an Eye, and The Believers, delivers Pacific Heights. The storyline for this picture is okay and reminded me of Taxi Driver mixed with Cape Fear. The plot wasn't intense but had a few dramatic sequences. The acting delivered solid but not outstanding performances. The cast includes Michael Keaton, Melanie Griffith, Matthew Modine, Mako, Sheila McCarthy, and Laurie Metcalf."Maybe he's one of those minority scam artists."I came across this on HBOGO and decided to give it a shot. It was just okay and not as dramatic as I thought it would be. I anticipated Keaton playing a fantastic psychopath, but I was disappointed. His character wasn't written as intense as it should have been (needed to be written a little darker like Cape Fear). This is just average and barely worth your time."It was just an investment."Grade: C

A lot of filler for not much payoff, but a lot of good/weird badness (and a few minutes of great low-budget stop motion animation) in between.

Isadore H (it) wrote: Very well done, but I felt as though the flashbacks to Turings early life really took away from the overall plot the movie had. However, it was eye opening as far as seeing how far we've come to be more accepting of homosexual people, incredible acting by everyone, especially Cumberbatch
