Visitor Comments

Bruce Humphrey: A thought-provoking Canadian art movie full of symbolism and twits and turns. The main character's beer-swilling, smoking, coarse and foul-mouthed sister's behaviour at her wedding is quite a contrast. Only for broad-minded adults.

Clinton Borain: One of the best produced movies in a long time, that left a little something in everyone's heart's.
