Storyline

Charlie is a sad sack of a man, working at a depressingly dull office job and stuck in a passionless engagement to a neurotic woman. One of the few bright spots in his life is his friend Mike, who seems to be living a life of carefree bohemianism. When the two end up on a long road trip together, they are forced to re-examine their lives and worldviews. Mike may have independence in some ways, but it has come at a price. Charlie, in turn, may feel trapped, but how much of the trap is of his own making? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

A great movie nobody knows about
22 September 1999 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

This appears to have been some kind of "homemade" movie, one of many to come from this period. (Like the 90s, everyone was making a movie in the 70s.) The sound and some of the editing is very crude. Other than that, this is a really good movie! It's not really a comedy, more like a drama with plenty of (light) comic moments. The characters are very interesting in what they do and say. Even if you dislike talky philosophical arty movies, like I usually do, I think you'll enjoy this. The movie also gives us a great taste of what the 70s were like.

This movie isn't available on video, and is only rarely screened on TV, so keep your eyes open for it, because you might not get a second chance.
