This movie is about
5 September 2005 | by mackenziejamiesonSee all my reviews

"This movie is about Alice's vagina and the vast arctic tundra." ...at least that is how the NY Film and Video Festival program summarized the movie. The Big Empty is short story about completing oneself through finding love. If you have the chance to see this film, have the expectations of a hilariously bizarre Woody Allen movie meets the works of Vonnegut to understand the humor of this film.

Gynecologist after gynecologist cannot help Alice figure out and cure the hurt she feels. Finally one of her coworkers refers Alice to a specialists. Though fed up with doctors, Alice gives the specialists a chance. What does the specialist discover? Nothing. Alice is completely empty. In fact, she is so empty, her vagina is as empty as the Artic Tundra. Amazed, the specialists takes Alice on tour to show the world how empty she is. But Alice still hurts...that is until one person comes along...
