Storyline

Elimination dances are illegal, because they cause uprisings of the people and governments just do not like that. The announcer reads, from cards, various embarrassing incidents and all those dancers who have experienced the incident must leave the floor, along with their partners. Disbelief must be suspended here because to leave the floor is to reveal, publicly, one's secrets. The reactions of those who leave the floor tell the story.

The finest short live action film in Canadian history
13 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Couples are eliminated from a dance when the Caller describes embarrassing incidents from their past. Will anyone be left standing at the end? A darkly humorous look at love and vulnerability. Based on a great short story by Michael Ondaatje. Fantastic acting by Don McKellar and Tracy Wright. Directed superbly by Bruce McDonald (Highway 61,Roadkill) This is the absolute best Canadian Short Live action film. Ever. I saw it on Bravo one night years ago,and have remembered it to this day. Why more people have not mentioned it is beyond me...Maybe it's a distribution thing.

I also saw the little book after I saw the film it in a small indy bookstore (in Picton?)and have regretted not buying it ever since. Not to be missed.
