"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.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
