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 way you see parking enforcers will change.
20 November 2004 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This film is unique in it's own little way. Trent Carlson And Blake Corbet have done a really good job writing this. The story and the situation is bizarre!

Who would write a movie about parking enforcers? It's perfect! They made it so real. The characters is so strange but in a way that you can relate to.

Think about yourself, going to your car, seeing a Parking Enforcer writing you a ticket. You get angry, right? Start to complain to this guy, that only is doing his job! Now try to see it from his perspective. You cant really?

Watch this movie, i promise you will laugh, and the way you see parking enforcers will really change.

The movie can at first glance be boring. But hold on a while and look at it. It's not that long. And by the time it's over your going to be happy that you didn't shut it off!
