Storyline

Kevin Barlow will die on schedule and according to regulations. Harry Parlington, director of the Cantos execution facility, intends to make sure of it. However Barlow chooses to go, be it calmly or fighting violently to the end, Parlington feels confident that he and his team can deal with the situation. When Barlow makes a baffling and unusual final request, a strange duel ensues between the condemned man and the prison director. In this struggle there can be no winner or loser, only two men faced with doubts and difficult choices to make. The iron grip Parlington usually maintains on the execution procedure begins to slip as the final hours become a maze of manners of dying. Written by Jeremy Peter Allen

Interesting concept
9 August 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the recent Brisbane International Film Festival and i was quite surprised that you could make a movie around the phrase "you are what you eat".

The movie tells the story of the last couple of hours of a man on death row and the warden tasked with executing him. The movie is a series of flashbacks as the warden constructs a letter to send to the man's mother. As he does so the audience is given several different versions of what could have happened. Each version begins with his last meal. Each time it is different and each time his reaction to his impending death is different.

Strong performances from both of the leads carry the movie which starts strong but after about 4 or 5 meals i began to lose interest generally and it was only these performances that kept me there. Good movie pity about the ending.
