Jumbo

New Zealand, 1998 (MIFF 1998, Fiction)

Director: Jim Marbrook

A terse, idiosyncratic study of love, mistrust and suburbia. Odlin is doing odd jobs for Ricky and Francine, but when Francine gives Odlin the keys to the house, Ricky takes a stand. An elegantly constructed tale about three very different people.
