"Yes" Is a Yes, If...

...If you're a Sally Potter (the director) fan. Here are some details: the main characters' names are He and She. This is a love story between a Middle Eastern man and a Western woman post 9/11. The actors speak in rhyme for the whole flick about Concepts and say things like, "Single is a word based on illusion. Life itself develops from a fusion." Get the picture? If these filmic techniques are a big turnoff, skip it. I, myself, am a Sally Potter fan, and I digged this film. I really rejoice whenever a filmmaker experiments with form even if it falls flat on its face, which this film does not.
