A comedy? No. But very well constructed.
22 January 2009 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is an oddly made but well constructed tale that really demands you pay close attention. Well, when it first began, I was distracted and found it necessary to re-start the film, as the way it's made, it's very easy to lose track of what's happening if you don't give it your full attention. But, considering how well it's done--it's well worth it.

The film starts with a guy calling a radio psychologist to talk about his failing marriage. But, when a co-worker catches him, he pretends he's NOT on the radio and quickly hangs up. This and the way you later see his wife treat him, you really, really feel sorry for the guy. Sure, later he acts a bit goofy, but I really loved how this film tackled a subject that is rarely covered in films--a woman who cheats on her husband, takes the kid and doesn't feel a whole lot of remorse for the guy. There obviously is more to it than this, but I liked not having the guy be the bad guy for a change of pace--as life isn't as black and white as our stories often make it.

What makes this really interesting, though, isn't just this male aspect of the film but the super-creative transitions that occur in the film--how one scene cleverly dissolves into another. It sure took a lot of work to do this--especially so smoothly. Great job and I look forward to seeing more from these folks. The only thing is that I felt this was definitely NOT a comedy no matter what it says on the IMDb page.

UPDATE--I just got word from the film maker who indicated this was made in 8 days and for only $800 dollars! Wow, I'm even more impressed now that I know that!
