Storyline

Nat drives on the interstate with his two young daughters in the back seats, when a car drives by and an unknown guy shoots one of his daughters dead for no reason. Nat's life is shattered. He becomes obsessed with finding the killers, assaults two men, kills one, goes to jail, is left by his wife, grows old estranged from his other daughter. We see the action first through Nat's eyes, then via Brautigan, the cop in charge of the investigation, and finally from the perspective of the remaining daughter Margo. The deconstructed narrative echoes the chaos within Nat and emphasizes the fact that the characters are out of tune with one another, which is the meaning of the original title.

Excellent
30 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Entertaining.. movie is filmed using point of view and time change. The initial event in the movie is a tragedy.. however, the rest of the movie lets you feel that the tragedy is dealing with tragedy never the actual tragedy.

This Canadian production uses both English and French and with the various characters and points of view creates an intricate plot out of a simple event. What I found refreshing is the lack of any twist or surprises. There are no mishaps in life. We create our lives. It becomes what we make of it. The father in this movie can't understand that. An incident caused by fate. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time is out of his control, but how one reacts to it is key.

This was all conveyed in a fast paced interesting manner.

Well done.
