Storyline

An unseen man recalls four days of his youth when he came of age. He is Simon, in mid teens, in awe of his father who's planned a robbery with the down-and-out Fury. Dad double-crosses Fury, using Simon in a switch of the bag of cash. Unknown to Simon, however, a bank guard later shoots dad dead and wounds Fury. Simon leaves Ontario, as planned, heading for a remote Québec town. When Fury discovers the money gone, he follow Simon with the aid of Simon's neighbor, Feather, who's been dad's lover. En route to Quebec, Simon is picked up by Chrystal, a wild woman who's just left her husband. They all meet beside a lake for a final sorting out of money and relationships.

Is this an Art film?
23 August 2003 | by Hunky StudSee all my reviews

This story is about a bank robbery. It doesn't contain much violence; it is more like an art movie. However, it is not so well done. It has many flaws.

For example, when the guy ran out of gas, he walked to the Santa's mystery hole store. When the owner gave him the gas tank, he didn't even pay for it; he just grabbed and walked away. The owner didn't even ask for the money. And at the end, when the same guy died from wound bleeding, his right hand was resting on the chair, which was higher than his elbow. The blood on his hand looks as if it was red paint. And it should be common sense that fluids, such as blood, never climb upward. But in this film, the blood someone didn't drop down to the floor, instead the blood climbed from his arm to your hand.

I think that I have seen Colm in one of the English film. I am surprised that in this film, he speaks perfect American English.

Kevin Zegers' eyes are mesmerizing. There are only those few people that you are watching, and this entire film is like a fantasy story, you know that it can't be true, but somehow you want to watch it till the end. The music is very artful, or maybe they are just so subtle that I didn't even notice. The whole setting appears to be out of the world.
