Storyline

In Topanga Canyon, in a beautiful but sparely appointed house, Jean Mackenzie feels like she's suffocating in her marriage to Paul, a tightly-wound architect. "I love you, it's us I don't like," she says to him as she embarks on an affair with Paul's opposite: a burly slacker named Viggo who lives in a trailer that has no bathroom. During the affair, she stays at Viggo's and continues to have contact with Phil. Where will his anger take him? Is Viggo, who's a good listener and an enthusiastic lover, more than a catalyst? Where will Jean's search for self - and for room to breathe - take her? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Terrific movie, grossly underrated
20 December 2008 | by mikls10See all my reviews

The film is a fresh breeze of 70th-style realism in our screen. The magnificence of the film is that it's deeply philosophical without being snobbish. In a few words the film shows how craziness of modern-day life destroys families without putting blame on either gender, but instead emphasizes on the affect of the society on relationships probably best described in the monologue of the "Frenchy". But the film perfectly avoids the diseases of many philosophical films: it does not fall into a "statement" movie shoving the ideas down your throat nor does it "artistically" over-complicates them. What makes it great that the film walks the fine line never falling into either of these categories. It's perfectly dynamic, watchable and enjoyable without compromising integrity. Did we become too dumbed down by media and rotten with all the aliens, vampires and violence garbage that we cannot watch a "normal" story anymore? I have no other explanation how this terrific film that received 4 golden awards went unnoticed by public and is even out if print now. Some user comments here confirm my point. What probably does not add to its popularity is that the film is rather gloomy and does not have a happy ending, it's simply truthful. On top of great plot and directing the film has an outstanding cast which is also probably out of the favor of the media. I have no other explanation why I never heard of these terrific actors. First and foremost is of course Kelsey Oldershaw who seemed to have no limits. She can show such a variety of emotions just by the expression on her face - it's amazing. Another great actor is Andy Mackenzie who has a wide palette of his own. My overall score: perfect 10.
