A thoughtful, tragicomic film
11 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

Boundaries is a very good film. I was surprised to read some of the negative comments. The only way to justify them is that they must be written by people who missed all of the film's subtleties. This well-crafted film manages to be, both layered, and very entertaining. The use of repetition is very effective, it seems to underscore some unpleasant yet unavoidable aspects of human existence. We humans spend our lives being hit by the proverbial trombone. We fall into patterns, we seek our own traps, and then grow to love the things that we find most frustrating and torturous. Human nature is very perplexing and this film captures some of the absurdities of our existence in a very rich way. Another dimension of the film involves the clash of cultures, which the director explores in a humorous and unflinching way. I look forward to seeing more of Mr. Durbin's work in the festivals!
