What did we think?
The colour and quirkiness of this film won me over from the get go. The cast of familiar faces (way too many to name) doesn’t distract from this film; in fact it adds to the wonderful chaos that combines to be a truly enjoyable story of one man’s now very lonely, yet complete, life. The story, cast and production design combine to create on the screen an unreal world that sucks you in and holds you there, and at just the right moments slaps you in the face to remind you that it’s all just a bit of fun.
