Storyline

A man in middle management at an insurance company is writing his performance evaluation, which brings on a crisis in identity: is this the life he's imagined for himself? Is he happy? Has he made the right choices? He plays scenes out in his mind: of meeting and falling in love with his equally chubby wife; of seeing his son turn into an unruly teen; of facing his younger, hipper, female boss, whom he imagines both threatening him and kissing him. All the while, he's aware of how he may appear to others - ridiculous - and that his wife may be unhappy. He's written a poem; does it hold the key to insight? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not bad...and amazingly unconventional
1 September 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film is about a mid-life crisis. The main character is a 50-something man and his life is monotonous and he's beginning to question who he is, his job and his relationships. His boss is horrid, his wife is good but sexually undesirable and the teenage son is a jerk.

The way this story is told is pretty creative as well as very confusing. In parts, it seems like a simple narrative whereas in others it's very surreal--making it tough to understand what is really happening. While I like SOME of this style, I really wish the film had been a little more clear in spots, as by the end of the film you really aren't sure what the man is doing with his life or if he's even sane--though I am sure this is the intention of the writer/director. This uncertainty, while it will annoy some will also endear this film to others, as life is so uncertain--especially as you hit middle age and have so many unanswered questions.

Would I want to see many more films like this or see this one again and again? No, but it was a nice film by a group of young film makers and it shows promise for their future careers.
