Storyline

A voice says, "There are 1,000,000 moments in your neighborhood; each has a fragile presence which fades almost as it forms." Ten such moments are dramatized, from a chubby man exercising and realizing that "sex" and "thing" go together to an ill, bored child discovering that most pieces of paper fit on top of a Scotties box. Along the way, a child races time, a matron thinks she hears a woodpecker, an unfaithful gay man wonders why his eyes can't focus on two depths simultaneously, Angela thinks about her uncle's pet pig as she eats pork, beer-drinking Ed recalls his school football days and vows to get back in shape, and a bachelor remembers his mother.

Humorous reminder of our 'secret lives' and what we take for granted.
19 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

Campion and Lee had the audience roaring at their look of everyday moments we take for granted. The narrator's deadpan voice adds a nice sardonic touch. My favorites were the man singing "that 70's song about cleaning up jeans," and the little girl with the tissue box. An amusing little film, made suddenly poignant by the narrator's last voice over - approximately 'there are over one billion moments in a neighborhood, and most of them are gone before we realise it.'
