Description by OLDIES.com:

This modern, dark comedy is about people searching for love and family in an era where relationships are not as clearly defined as either hetero or homosexual. The film focuses on roommates/ex-lovers David (Thomas Gibson), a cynical actor-turned-waiter, and Candy (Ruth Marshall), an ever-hopeful book reviewer, and their hilarious, often-poignant entanglements with a psychic dominatrix (Mia Kirshner), a bartender (Rick Roberts), a lesbian schoolteacher (Joanne Vannicola), a seventeen-year-old busboy (Matthew Ferguson), and a misogynistic yuppie (Cameron Bancroft). All of this takes place within an urban landscape where a serial killer is attacking young women.

Denys Arcand is the director of the 2003 Oscar-winning Best Foreign Language Film The Barbarian Invasions, and Best Foreign Language Film Oscar-nominees Jesus of Montreal (1989) and The Decline of the American Empire (1986). Newly remastered.

Product Description:

This acclaimed black comedy is boldly directed by Canadian Denys Arcand. The story revolves around a group of thirty something citydwellers. The pack includes David (Thomas Gibson), an acerbic bisexual actor-turned-waiter, who shares an apartment with his ex-lover Candy (Ruth Marshall), a book reviewer who's so disappointed in her relationships with men that she's decided to try a lesbian affair. A teenage busboy named Kane (Matthew Ferguson) lusts after David, while Jerri (Joanne Vannicola) and Robert (Rick Roberts) the bartender, both have designs on Candy. David and his old friend Bernie (Cameron Bancroft) ironically lament the state of their lives in the 1990s. In the midst of all this confusion, Benita (Mia Kirshner), a clairvoyant dominatrix, tries to shed some light on things. Meanwhile, there's a serial killer stalking the streets of Montreal, which makes the prospect of dating a stranger more complicated than ever. The bawdy sensational screenplay is based on Brad Fraser's play UNIDENTIFIED HUMAN REMAINS AND THE TRUE NATURE OF LOVE.
