I saw this film at the Vancouver BC Film Festival, and thoroughly enjoyed it. A high point of the festival.
It's sharp, dark and sarcastic -- and very funny. The director skillfully creates a unique world for her characters that never waivers. With the premise of a woman "just wanting to help" springs a over-the-top gruesome caper flick that makes sense in an extremely odd way. It's also uses everyday themes that we can all relate to -- the film starts with the lead being sent home after major surgery. Plus, the tone is nicely set at the beginning, with the opening shots being ecu's of suturing.
For me, it was this year's "Primer." Hope it shows up in video stores.
