"An Original 10..." - Tom Millan "Kindred Gem Films 1998"
18 June 2008 | by marksnakehandlerSee all my reviews

This film was well written, well acted, well directed and well lit. Even the score seem to connect perfectly with this dark comedy. I found this movie to have its strange mix of wit and dark humor which blends perfectly. This is one bizarre tale of an auditor from Revenue Canada who enters a strange town, with strange inhabitants and one strange apartment complex.

We have a mix of small town inhabitants with sadistic humor and odd behaviors as we see this Revenue Canada outsider become unfortunately intertwined within the lust, greed and corruption that surrounds this small tightly knit community with arcane behaviors. This is a drama/ dark comedy that isn't for everyone. However, if you like dark and strange cult like films, I'm sure that you'll find "The Michelle Apartments" as one of those films. If you are for more happy and brightly atmospheric films, this film may not be your ticket. Hats off to all the actors who did a good job in this film.
