Storyline

Jess is a solo mother and reluctant parking warden. Tom is a self-obsessed Greetings Cards salesman with an addiction to competitions who will do anything to win. Together they are just two of the competitors in a grueling endurance contest to win a car - whoever keeps their hand on it the longest wins. As the sleepless days wear by, what price will they pay for winning this competition and will it be worth more than the car itself? Show of Hands is a tale of desperation, determination - and love.

Charming, witty, original
22 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This opera prima is as good as it gets. Beyond a simple premise, multiple existential and emotional issues are explored in sensitive ways. This is a fresh new approach to intelligent, creative and great quality movie-making. Basic human decency is juxtaposed with greed and treachery in such a way that makes you a better person when you leave the theater. Above all, it keeps your interest all along, you do not want it to end. Life and death, love and hate, aggressiveness and submission are shown within the context of a commercial situation which turns into a whirlwind of twists and turns with totally original and unexpected developments.
