This movie was really good. In the typical Canadian indie movie style it has a bleak and dark look and somewhat melodramatic. The movie opens with a WWII footage which acts as a metaphore for the whole movie and its conflicts. This movie has an all star cast for an indie film. Also since this is a Canadian film as soon as the movie gets dull out comes the typical nude scene. Thats not a bad thing but it was pointless. Still this movie is great for its heavy use of metaphores, almost every visual image relates to something else. For instance the last scene with him looking at the camera in his apartment hallway with the angled camera. This sumerizes the whole movie in that one shot. Its a great commantary of the film agency in Canada. It takes some getting used to, to like the film but once you get the visuals and the metaphores then the movies becomes an instant favourate.
