I bought this film the day it came out because I thought that it was perfectly casted. This is also one of the directors first films. I was absolutely amazed at this film. I loved every aspect of it and would reccommend it to anyone who loves film. It is more for the crime fans, but the aspects of The Air I Breath are so perfect that it doesn't matter what kind of film you normally watch. The symbolism envolving the butterfly is my favorite part. The film is about how the main characters, whose names are symbolic as well, and how the people in their life influence it. I won't say anymore cause it is kinda hard to explain and I don't want to give to much away. Just take my advice and go BUY this film.

One of the best lines that somewhat relates to the characters: “Everyone has a purpose. Sometimes a person …

I thought this film took just the right steps. More than half of the time, I was really interested in what was going on because the events that were unfolding were multilayered. Although there are four main storylines, characters fuse into other storylines so the film felt more concrete. As for the actors, I haven’t seen Brendan Frasier in anything for a while so it was nice to see him here. Even though his character was supposed to be this tough guy, the audiences come to realize that he’s more complex than that. He’s actually sensitive and he does think a lot about action and their consequences. I didn’t really expect Emile Hirsch to have that big of a role but I was surprised that he managed to shine every time he’s on screen. In fact, he provided the much needed comic …
