Original and great fun!
15 February 2015 | by SuzyCayenneSee all my reviews

Of the 41 films I saw at SBIFF, this was the most strikingly original. I don't want to say much about the plot--and I have to admit that when I read the synopsis in the festival program, I wasn't at all interested in it. I saw it on the strength of one person telling me it was only 5/5 review she'd given a film so far.

Basically, a woman decides to try and sort herself out with a form of music therapy. She can't stick the actual therapy sessions, and resorts to a DIY approach. The lead actress was wonderfully deadpan, and her hyper male counterpart the perfect contrast.

The story is fun and quirky, the low-budget production actually complements the script very well, and the whole theater was constantly breaking into laughter.

I came out of this one feeling cheered and optimistic, that there's hope for humanity as long as someone can come up with a movie like this.
