movie cover

A dark comedy about a group of people looking for love and meaning in the early '90s. The film focuses on roommates David, a gay waiter who has given up on his acting career, and Candy, a book reviewer who is also David's ex-lover. David and Candy's lives are entangled with those their friends and acquaintances: a psychic dominatrix, a bus-boy, and a misogynistic civil-servant, a bartender and a lesbian schoolteacher. And one of which may be a serial killer terrorizing the town.

Qvamp says:

A darkly humorous murder mystery, this film amuses you with sardonic one-liners while also portraying the isolation and longing that fills the characters.

The main character is openly gay and has an interest in another male character. However, the inclusion of the murder mystery within the plot seems a bit odd, not really fitting in, but also not detracting from the story.

The storyline follows a group of seven somewhat shallow, narcissistic people trying to find love and meaning in an unnamed Canadian city being terrorized by a serial killer.

Overall the acting is good and the story enjoyable enough. But if you're looking for horror, this is not the right film.
