Director: Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon, Bruno Romy
“It takes a certain amount of skill, not to mention hubris, to milk laughs out of attempted suicide, severe memory loss, amputated legs and burning homes.” - Variety
Fiona and Dom love Latin dance and each other; on a return trip from a weekend competition they swerve to avoid a suicidal man on the road and crash their car into a wall; Fiona loses a leg, Dom, his memory. With their newfound handicaps, a truckload of slapstick and a bevy of circus-style stunts, the duo find comedy abounds in their tragic situation.
With virtually no music or dialogue, writers/directors/performers Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon and Bruno Romy (the team behind the 2005 hit Iceberg) meld the style of Wes Anderson with the humour of Jaques Tati to create an original world where laughter is the best medicine.
