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.

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 »
My laughter was only matched by my sympathy for Parking Enforcers.
I had the pleasure of watching Trenton Carlson's, The Delicate Art of Parking, at the Vancouver Film Festival. After it won best Canadian Feature at the Montreal Fest, I knew it was gonna be good, but I couldn't stop laughing. I can't look at a Parking Enforcer the same way again. The film was also quite touching though. The director, screenwriter and actors, take us on the emotional journey of these crazy Parking Enforcers. This gives the film another layer to appreciate it on. If you're looking for a smart and intriguing movie to let out some belly laughs to, then keep an eye out for, The Delicate Art of Parking. Until then be sure to plug your meter and don't double park.
