Storyline

Lars Olafssen, once a young celebrity in the art world is slipping away fast into the land of has-beens. His long-time art dealer, Ronny, is now an ungracefully aging hipster who desperately wants his meal ticket back. But Lars refuses to paint. His creativity comes at too high a cost - his inspiration is carnage - blood, guts and limbs. Not surprisingly, this lead to a dreadful breakdown in the past. Nevertheless, an eager Ronny arranges a teaching job for Lars at an art school in Koda Lake, a small Canadian town in the middle of nowhere. It's a "therapeutic" measure for Lars - a means to conquer his need to paint in the "safety" of a country retreat... That is, until Eddie comes into his life. Written by dobbinnian / rodriguez

Nice movie, entertaining
26 February 2012 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

I was skeptical about this movie, I didn't have any feedback about it and I was expecting a poor and boring movie but it turned out to be quite okay.

The movie is about a painter that hadn't produced nothing new in years and that found himself living with a sleepwalking cannibal. Watching his companion eating and murdering people, he finds that the thrill of killing gives him the inspiration that he needs to paint and starts exploiting his partner to make new paintings.

The actors were well chosen, mainly the sleepwalking cannibal. The soundtrack of the movie is pretty good too. I just wish that they worked more in the background story and expanded the relationships between the characters.

In despite of some clichés throughout the movie, it's a good and entertaining one.
