A masterpiece
27 March 2007 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I think this film is brilliant, not only is it funny, well made, well acted, but it achieves exactly what it aims to achieve. It made me think about the characters, question their mortality, and my own. It concerns Marv who thinks he is dead and begins living his life as a ghost, to the dismay of his family, a top notch performance by Chloe Traicos as his wife.

At a point, not sure if it was intended, but the narrative alters slightly, in a good way, and I begun to question whether marv was still alive, or whether his wife pretended he was still alive, in this state, because she could not let go, either way, I was not let down one second.

Although I was let down by the cinematography, he could have done a better job, sorry mate. :-(
