For any of you out there who considers life to be purposeless/pointless and you feel totally helpless and ridiculous...this movie ought to put you back on track. The main character, a middle school teacher is lost, I mean really lost in thought---all the time and seems that even a household pet has a more interesting life...the cat. The movie is hard to describe but let me try--- it is about someone who will find the guts to try to accomplish something after a series of ridiculous and tragic event --- the color of the movie changes dramatically in the last scene because not only has the character awaken to his own life but the audience as well---the movie is that good but only after you figure it out!!!
