Storyline

Isabelle lives alone in a big city with her two cats, and runs a shabby book store in a bohemian area of town. Her life consists of a set of dull daily rituals: breakfast at her local coffee shop, reading classical romance novels, and talking to her long-distance foster sister Jennifer every evening on the telephone. Everything changes when Isabelle's ex-lover James appears at her store. Her life instantly fills with excitement and color, and although Jennifer is frantic with worry, Isabelle becomes lost in a fantasy world with her supposed soul mate. The relationship is emotionally abusive, however, and Isabelle begins to self-destruct. Jennifer puts her own life on hold and drives across the country to save her foster sister, bringing a secret from their shared past... Isabelle's lover can't possibly be James. Written by Anonymous

Slow moving, absurd, good cat actors.
1 September 2013 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I kept watching this movie to the end because I was fascinated by its badness. And because there is a trio of attractive cat actors who take up more screen time than the story justifies but who are about the only thing about this disaster that are attractive or interesting and the only ones that a person might care about.

The story is about Isabelle, a bookstore owner and cat lover who evidently is cracking up. She's getting flashbacks from her past with weird sounds in the background. You have to wait to nearly the end of the film to see what the flashbacks are all about. Because Isabelle is crazy she's not a very likable or interesting character. She lacks affect and has zero personality. I don't blame the actress who plays her, she's playing a very damaged and evil person, but she's damaged in a way that makes her boring and repellent. I believe that people like that really are boring, unlike Lucy in the famous opera. Not only is Isabelle boring, the movie is so sluggish as molasses in unfolding the plot. Only the cats make it the least bit interesting. O yes, Isabelle has a sister, or sister surrogate, and they're always talking on the phone about Isabelle's mental state and sinister events in the past the nature of which are never really clear. For some insane reason the sister thinks she has to rescue the pathetic Isabelle..from herself?

I hope I've said enough to make you not want to see this flick. I won't reveal the plot which grinds to a halt after way too long. There's quite a bit of blood at the end, but it's still boring. Instead of suspense you have ennui. Like many low budget films the problem isn't the low budget but the fact that there's really no story here and no interesting characters (except the cats). The plot has no twists and turns but plods along in a straight line to a sticky conclusion. Run away!
