A film worth seeing for its process even more than its content
17 September 2000 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

This film was produced through an improv workshop technique. And, since each actor created their own character and contributed to the plot, the results show. The energy of this film crackles off the screen. Since each actor knows their character's history better than anyone else it is impossible for someone to misplay their role. The feeling from this film is incredible and I strongly recommend everyone to see it if only to encourage more films of this type being made.

The story, it should also be noted, is very good. It's one of the best ensemble pieces I have seen in 2000.
