From “Grand Canyon” to the Oscar-winning film, “Crash,” Hollywood continually gives us stories that help us understand that we are all interconnected. The point is driven home again in the upcoming film, “The Air I Breathe.”
The film evolves in four short fables in which characters collide with fate — and each other make up this beautiful looking story. Boasting a brilliant ensemble cast, the film is inspired by a Chinese proverb that breaks life down into four key emotions — Happiness, Sorrow, Pleasure, and Love — and each vignette is built around a character who embodies one of these key emotions.
The talented ensemble cast includes Oscar Winner Forest Whitaker, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Oscar-nominee Andy Garcia, Emile Hirsch, Brendan Fraser, Kevin Bacon and Julie Delpy. Can’t speak for the film’s chances, but when these types of films are done well they’re very effective.
