I feel kinda bad about bagging on a home-grown micro-budget film like this, and a directorial debut to boot, but it just wasn't my cup of tea. It seemed a bit out of place being part of the London Comedy Festival too, as it's not very funny. The best moments, in fact, are born of pathos, such as David Hoyle's scene-winning performance as the world weary magician delivering a melancholic, metaphysical card trick which spellbinds his audience.
It seems like there's a nod to Jeunet & Caro in the film's visual style (it evokes Delicatessen and The City of Lost Children quite strongly) and that's well done. The writing is what lets it down - it's just flat for the most part. There's not much of a plot either, more a series of loosely connected vignettes that is ultimately quite unsatisfying.
