pretty good
14 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Disregard comments from the disgruntled tiff attendee above (it's a shame a venue like IMDb sometimes acts as nothing more than a host for people with a tiny axe to grind).

This is a sharply written, well-acted little film. I say little, as it's obvious the budget was quite low. The director has a good sense of colour and of music. The performances are good all around. The humour is nicely laced into the situations presented in the script.

Some of his experimental cuts didn't work for me personally and the film as a whole may not be commercial enough for some, but the wryness of the writing and performances more than made up for that for me personally.
