"Bella" a film with no buzz won the top prize at the Toronto International Film Festival. I wasn't there. I was sitting in front of a television watching the Razorbacks squeak by Vanderbilt. Tom O'Neil of the Los Angeles Times was there. Here's what he had to say,
"Bella" was a suspicious choice because the film had such a low profile at the fest. In fact, I didn't hear anyone mention it over my nine days in Toronto. "Bella" is by a first-time filmmaker (Alejandro Monteverde) and follows the rather ho-hum story of a man and woman who flee their restaurant jobs and grow close while journeying through New York City one day.
