Rewarding, thoughtful film
6 March 2006 | by (Winnipeg, Canada) – See all my reviews

I recently had the fortune to see this film at Winnipeg' NSI FilmExchange and left the theatre dazed, thoughtful and eager to see more.

"The Zero Sum" is simply one of the best Canadian films I've ever seen. Ewen Bremner delivers such a powerful, economical performance that paints the dilemma of a man trying to change his essential nature and find redemption for a life spent poorly. Sarah Strange is by turns vulnerable and luminous. She turns in such a powerful performance of a woman afraid of the world around her. I was fascinated by her relationship with the man who (unknowningly) brought her to such a state.

One hell of a story. I can't wait to see the next one.
