My overall impression

Anaconda was a wonderfully intense experience. Powerful performances, a FANTASTIC cast and great script. My worry going in was that it woukd draw too heavily on the drama of the traumatizing event and not on the personal stories of the characters involved (I guess I’ve had too much Hollywood blockbuster junk filling my brain lately). This was not the case at all. I was completely engrossed in each character’s story; their all-too-human struggles were conveyed with a very refreshing honesty and clarity. My only complaint is that I would have really loved more stage time for Becker and Tove so we could delve more into how they were affected by past incidents. But everyone was fantastic.
