This film is the anti-thesis of the "Boy Meets Girl" genre.
14 December 2009 | by imwithidSee all my reviews

The usual summer line-up isn't complete without the mandatory "Boy Meets Girl" comedy. These films are not to be taken seriously for the intended reason that they are a mere subterfuge for other activities within the theater.

This film begins with some of the light hearted comedic sense of the "BMG" films but with fluidity that captures the viewer into the fantasy. Fantasies never last long and fluidity turns to turbulence and a sense of chaos. Soon enough, the viewer is awoken from paradise and thrown into what could be described as a David Lynch type directive with the unknown striking at any moment as if one is driven down a road in complete darkness, with twists and turns imminent.

This film is not sugar coated and you will not be spoon fed. It is not meant to be "Chicken Soup for the Soul", however, may leave you searching for what comfort remains.
