Filmmaker Alex Harty, 29, has always considered himself a "tortured artist"-but it's not until his wife dies in a car accident that he learns the term's true meaning. Still saddled with grief two years after her death, Alex's once-promising career has come to a standstill. After assaulting a movie producer with a Mont Blanc pen in Los Angeles, Alex returns to his hometown of San Francisco with little more than his beloved Mercury Comet, and a tape recording of his wife's last phone message. Once in the Bay Area, Alex re-acquaints himself with a wide array of characters, including a photographer who's stalking her ex-boyfriend, a fetish-hungry former classmate, a San Francisco socialite who fancies herself as a patron of the arts, a wedding band singer turned performance artist, a flashy City Supervisor who aspires to be the next JFK, Jr., and the now grown-up French girl who spent her childhood summers as his neighbor. Several misadventures, including a comical car accident, a series ... Written by Anonymous

A Touching Comedy
21 June 1999 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

The cast shines in this dramatic comedy about a young filmmaker (Jeremy Sisto) trying to get over the death of his beautiful wife (GH'sVanessa Marcil). Sisto leaves LA (after a very funny scene where he attacks Garry Marshall with a pen) and returns to his hometown, San Francisco, where he hangs out with a bizarre bunch of friend who help him get his life back on track. Eric Palladino is hilarious as Sisto's sex-obsessed friend from high school. But masturbation and sexual fetish talk aside the film actually is more successful in its softer areas where we see Sisto's affection for his dead wife and the road he travels in order to move on with his life. The crowd that I saw this with in Seattle loved it. Highly recommended if you can get a chance to see this one.
