Victor Arnet is a lonely corporate accountant on the top floor of the M-Core building. Victor has been locked in the day-to-day charade of his life for the past ten years. He's had enough. It's time to throw caution to the wind and resign. Victor's hopes of resignation are halted with the announcement that M-Core owner Mr. M, an eccentric wheelchair bound millionaire, is moving to the top floor, sending all offices one floor down. Floating in uncertainty, and the paranoid delusions of his immediate supervisor Gerald, Victor's situation at work deteriorates, as does the building's aging plumbing system. Enter Eve, a young female plumber, whose insurmountable task it is to restore the failing water pipe system. As Victor spends more and more time with Eve, and finds unexpected friendship with the secretive Mr. M; Victor's life, while still confusing, begins to fall strangely into place. Written by GK

Now THIS is a film worth seeing
6 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

Out of all the schlock we've as moviegoers have seen of late, this film is a genuine treat, filled with nuanced performances, smart dialogue and genuine emotion. THIS is a movie that doesn't cheat. It doesn't force anything. Finally, we as moviegoers can just sit back, relax, and react how we see fit. This was easily the best film I saw at the Santa Barbara Film Festival. As I understand, it has no distributor as of yet. To this I can only say, "Why Not?"

In a nutshell: A wonderful little miracle!

Gal Katzir, the director, has brought to life a marvelous gallery of characters, including Victor, the hero.

The acting in this movie, for the most part, was better than any other feature I saw at this festival.

The writing was nuanced and could not believe this was the writers' first screenplay.

The cinematography was brilliant. It seemed as if the same amount of care was put into every shot. Great!
