Storyline

The saddest thing in life is to fall for someone you can never have. Welcome to the world of PARKER GRAVES. Consumed with his legacy, Parker spends his idle time reading obituaries and walking through the cemetery pondering his existence. Lacking inspiration, he looks to the past for answers. One day, his life takes a dramatic turn, when out of morbid curiosity he wanders anonymously into a funeral and becomes entranced by HOPE, a deceased ballerina. She immediately leaves an indelible imprint on his soul. Driven by her memory, Parker begins to question his path in life to the dismay of those closest to him. As his obsession grows for her, the shortcomings of his own life begin to magnify. Once a composer filled with great promise, Parker now toils away unfulfilled, writing jingles for an advertising agency. He can't get past the question, how does one make a living as an artist in today's society? He fares no better at his relationship with SARAH, a career girl caught up in the mores...

Still thinking of giving this film ten stars. I'll have to see it again....
7 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No spoilers herein under. The Film: Interesting, thought provoking, Original Ideas and superlative music! This director and retinue deliver the drama and comedy (dramedy) as well as the intelligentsia and an extraordinary (imaginative) plausible interplay of events of the romance.

I will see this film again and if anyone knows if there is a CD of the music, let me know! I Enjoyed the film because it provided the opportunity to examine a romance from a unusual perspective that is strangely funny yet artistically devoid of stereotypical themes in any film of this genre I've seen and in this film are subtle nuances and intricate sub-informative outlays of profound proportions that may be missed (another one of the reasons why I need to see this film again!).

The Actors: Chris Bruno (Parker) is believable and portrayed his character professionally as did all the actors in the film. Brittany Daniel, Ted Lange, Morgan Margolis and Lisa Labriola. The only actor that I recognized was Ted Lange of the 'Love Boat' series and was surprised to see him in such a low budget film until I saw the movie and realized he read the script and just made a very smart move as all involved in this production did (in my opinion).

What I Found Questionable: Does 'Parker' refer to some evasive joke of its own character name? (Do the names of the characters have hidden meanings?)

I could write much more about this film except I will defer to vague references as not to 'spoil' it for anyone.
