*** Great little Canadian film
22 May 2001 | by Bil-3See all my reviews

Charming little Canadian film that marks the debut of director Andrea Dorfman. The story follows a bicycle maintenance teacher named Kate who is in a seemingly perfect relationship with the perfect boyfriend, Ollie, a sexual education instructor. Trouble comes in the form of a possible pregnancy for Kate, resulting in her re-evaluation of how much she wants to be in her relationship with Ollie despite his apparent perfection. A good herbologist friend recommends to her the ingestion of mass amounts of parsley for the purposes of a natural abortion (supposedly the acidic qualities in parsley will interrupt a very new pregnancy). The film's humble budget is quite obvious from the get-go (some bad looping included), but Dorfman's sharp observations of her deliciously quirky characters are so marvelous that it's really all you notice when watching it.
