Storyline

A man in a suit at a Manhattan firm leaves work on Friday; he looks unhappy. He stops at a fortune teller's for a Tarot reading: "You are not where you belong," she tells him. That evening he quits his marriage and walks the streets of New York, passing from a classy bar to a gentleman's club, then to a high-class bordello, a mugging, a pawnshop, and a diner where someone does listen. He shares his insights with her and later with others. Violence, disappointment, and musings entwine as Edmond loses his moorings while believing he's found them. Where does he belong?

Disturbingly good, irritatingly true!
14 November 2006 | by ceylenoSee all my reviews

Its a great movie. So exciting! Usually cruel in telling the truth. It gets you in, ties your arms and legs, and at the end, hits you real hard. There is good quality black humor served as rare cooked conversations. Important little details and the declaration of looserness inside the movie is amazing. But of course the casting has a lot to do with it. The general flow of the events and conversations are about life, its dynamics, relationships and social tendencies. But what the movie is really all about, you find it out at the end.

Definitely worth watching. But not with kids around; not when you are in a negative mood neither. :)
