    It isn't often that lives of quiet desperation are served up with such pearly restraint.
  2. A comedy of the most delicately balanced perfection.
  3. Its leisurely pace and surreal poetry won't break box-office records, but will surely serve to introduce Mendelsohn as a major new talent.

    Possesses moments of fleeting grace, pathos and beauty, even if it ultimately doesn't amount to much.

    A gentle, offbeat drama that hails the arrival of a new talent in writer-director Eric Mendelsohn, and bids a poignant farewell to a uniquely gifted actress, the late Madeline Kahn.

    The film is one-note; misery is the only game in town.
