Not a half-baked serial killer story ... it's actually great
11 June 2005 | by Alice_KSee all my reviews

The video cover makes it look a very trashy thriller - which it is not at all. It's about the life and times of Anne, a young and ambitious photographer. The style is very light and natural. The actors are convincing, 'real' types - Laura Harrington is especially good. Shot in Toronto I believe and set there too, which makes a nice change.

The ending is not so good, frankly. But the rest more than makes up for this. The subjects explored are unusual. Some great scenes and characters. A menage a trois after a party is depicted with such awkward truth that it's very funny - with a sting in the tail. The sequence where Anne photographs a stripper is filled with energy. A fascinating experience. The soundtrack's really good too.
