Bertram Pincus is a man whose people skills leave much to be desired. When Pincus dies unexpectedly, but is miraculously revived after seven minutes, he wakes up to discover that he now has the annoying ability to see ghosts.
Work, family, relationships, deadlines, terrorism, information overload... When modern life is getting crazier and crazier, day by day, who wouldn't think about getting out? Leaving it all behind? Wouldn't that be the only sane response to this mad world? "Asylum Seekers" is about escapism, about feeling the pressure and deciding on a radical solution. Our six characters can't take their various stresses any more and are heading for the door marked EXIT. It leads to a deluxe, exclusive, luxuriously-appointed mental asylum, an adult funfair where they can let it all go and be waited on hand and foot for the rest of their carefree lives. Or so it seems... The first twist is that there are limited places. Only one free bed remains. The competition is on. And there are many other surprises lying in wait for the unwary, would-be-insane patient... The ride out of the world they know has only just begun! Written by
So many movies are the same and this one isn't, mixing wry humor, visual painting that combines an unpredictable story (refreshing, that) with some bizarre circumstances. See it, experience it, this is the stuff that scifi fantasy fans just wait and wait for, something new and unusual.
Adults need fantasy with wit and the bigger than life characters in the film are fraught with humor and totally twisted! Notable performances form the principles, hilarious and just so wrong, I bet Carlos Castaneda & Lewis Carroll would love this film.
I look forward to more of Ajami's directing!
