This is a great movie, with lots to appeal to a lot of different kinds of people. There is a continuous thread of humor that is very engaging, and a very cleverly-built suspense around how far things might go. There is a creative tension around the bizarre love triangle between the three main actors. The clashes between current ways of thinking and living and the vestiges of those of a generation ago is presented with love and plain good fun. A lot of original material and situations - you just don't see that much these days.
Canadian cinema is often criticized as being slow, boring, and too introspective. This film is guilty of none of those and will likely find success in all markets.
