A singularly weird affair that gets back on the imaginative concept regardless of the lack of substance
12 April 2007 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

A man wakes on the ceiling of his bedroom and breaks a lamp to alert his wife to his predicament. She puts on her heavy boots, unstraps herself out of her bed and uses a hook on a pole to drag him back down. The next day he goes to his job where he works as a deodorant tester, sniffing the armpits of exercising test subjects. On this day though, he faces an event that will change his life forever.

Look, I have written a plot summary for this film the best I can but even then all I do is describe actions rather than look at narrative. Shown on the Best V Best Vol 2 DVD this film was one of a couple that I struggled to understand but, funnily enough, this was the only one where I didn't really have my enjoyment damaged by this. It is a bit of style over substance perhaps but the film is just so weird that I found it quite engaging. Of course there was an element where I wanted more substance or some context to what I was watching but even without it I thought it was interesting.

Peers is obviously due the credit for this because it is his vision and his delivery. OK so I think he did a bad job of delivering a story that I understood but outside of that he did a great job as director, making this world convincing and fascinating. Overall then a very strange film that does very much get by on the imaginative concept rather than substance but, in this case, it does enough to hold the attention.
