Storyline

Two men who were "best friends" while growing up together and into their 20's, reconnect after years apart. On the surface, their lives have gone in opposite directions, one married, successful, respectful and settled; the other divorced, footloose, unemployed and prowling. The narrative is not linear but vertical as simple get together to "have a drink" leads to a nihilistic descent into macho hell. The only thing that survives their reunion is their love for one another. Written by Cahoots Produtions.

Headed to the bargain bin at a video shop near you SOON
29 April 2001 | by janhusSee all my reviews

I just saw this movie at the Plzen Film Festival. I have to say that I cannot figure out why it was made. The characters are one-dimensional, the story is simplistic (not *always* a bad thing) and I cannot get to like or even understand the characters behaviour. The character Matt is a weak stereotype of what a bully is when he grows up. And the other male lead would not just be so divided between his "real" life (a married architect) and his "old" life (school friends, drinking etcetera). Not very well planned. Same story might have worked, if told differently.
