An absurd comedy about a Parking Enforcement Officer, who - despite constant abuse from the public - finds truth, honour and serenity in the act of ticketing. His religious devotion to the work is challenged however, when his best friend and personal mentor is run down by an irate motorist and knocked into a deep coma. With the help of an angry young filmmaker, a Russian sound recordist hoping to break into the local film industry, and a seven-foot tall tow truck driver from Quebec, he embarks on a comical investigation into... the delicate art of parking.

'mockumentary' on parking enforcers
5 March 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

here we have a 'mockumentary'(fake documentary)on the people who enforce the parking know who i leave your car,and come back to it,only to find that nice little piece of paper on know the 1 that says you have to pay a fine because you parked 30 seconds too long at the metre,or you parked half an inch to far from the curb.well the movie is about the people who put those nice pieces of paper on the windshield,i person in particular.this person's name is Grant,and Grant is of the opinion that his job is very is a public service,and to hear him talk about it,akin to curing disease.they even have a 'guru'of parking enforcement named Murray which they revere very highly,like a god.they even spout philosophical drivel from the man himself.this movie should be funny,but it isn' is mildly amusing(and i do mean mildly)at best.there is nothing profound in this movie,that i can see.i wouldn't recommend renting it,but if you see it on TV,and you have nothing else to do,it will serve as a diversion for around 90 is less than 90 minutes,and it does go by quickly,so that is a plus.others may find some this movie hysterical and even 'deep'but for me,it is average entertainment at best.'my vote for 'The Delicate art of Parking'? 5/10
