Storyline

In this black comedy feature film, David Hemblen plays Richard, a filmmaker who recounts the events leading to his collapse into madness, beginning with the infestation of his home by rats. Continually down on his luck, he convinces a broadcaster to fund a documentary on rats, which to him represent his disintegrating life. His progress is continually interrupted by set backs and further rat infestations, until one night he discovers another documentary has beaten him to the punch. Written by ndola@sympatico.ca

Wonderful dark humour in something truly horrific
14 May 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Great film, interesting approach to this subject, wonderful sense of black humour. Well worth watching. The rats are real which makes this all the more interesting in the age of digitally produced facsimiles Jacques Holender has a profound understanding of the reality of horror that happens when an infestation is encountered Very good film This film should change most peoples perceptions of rats. Are the rats real in his mind or only imagined. From a personal point of view, going away and coming back to the horrendous smell would be truly horrifying. This film makes the whole idea of encounters with rats beyond imagination. The cinematography in this show is excellent I truly recommend this show.
