Storyline

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.

Crazy Credits

The characters and events portrayed in this motion picture are entirely fictional. Any similarity to actual persons or events is purely unintentional. Except for Bob - he's based on Blake Corbet. And the scene where he's dancing - that was based on the time that Blake was dancing at the Mile Zero (2001) wrap party. Everything else we made up. Honest. See more »

That guy needs his head adjusted
17 July 2008 | by (Auckland, NZ) – See all my reviews

So it's not the best film ever made, but it is so far away from the worst in my box that I feel compelled to write.

Look at what the independent critics say...today as I write Rotten Toms has it at 78%. That's a good mark. "A funny, poignant piece of meta-movie-making that is a worthy addition to the mockumentary genre" says Cinemania. MovieViews writes "The Delicate Art of Parking is held together because of its strong characters. They're funny, they're quirky and, most of all, they're realistic." That's just two. There's a lot more. So don't assume the worst. Rent it and have a few laughs at situations we've most of us experienced if we drive and park.
