Storyline

The Niagara Motel and the attached Riverside Grill, located in Niagara Falls, are owned and operated by Serbian father and daughter, the always angry Boris and hard working Sophie. Through the motel and/or restaurant comes a series of disparate but equally struggling people: middle aged couple Henry and Lil, formerly middle class but who are trying to cope with the loss of employment and its associated money; young couple R.J. and Denise, who are trying to clean up (with varying degrees of success) so that they can reclaim their daughter from foster care; and the restaurant's new waitress, young widowed French-Canadian Lori, who is escaping a complicated situation in her hometown and who is preyed upon by two locals, straight-laced Dave and less than straight-laced Michael. The person who sees everything that is going on is the motel's caretaker Phillie, a Scot who stayed in Niagara Falls following a personal tragedy.

Trivia

The interior motel scenes were filmed at the Dutch Connection Inn in Steinbach, Manitoba. According to Production Designer Deanne Rohde, the motel was "way too nice", so they had to make significant renovations to make it look run down, as well as build extra rooms. The real motel has since closed and the building converted to a strip mall. See more »

Good & enjoyable little dark comedy
26 March 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

If you are in the mood for a little black comedy, then this is the right film to watch. It's about the people who is currently living in this motel. The film interweaves between the main 3 storyline(a Waitress's entering to sexy film, a couple trying to get their child back & a husband looking for a new life) & the happenstance in between it.

It's definitely entertaining & with a good pace/flow; except for 3-4 seconds the Niagara Falls cut-in scenes, the falls was just too loud. It is Not too artsy nor horribly dark that you just feel sorry for them. It's better than the average film & lives up to the trailer; so if you like the trailer, then check it out.
