Description

Wrist Cutters: A Love Story is a thoroughly original dramedy that gets under your skin in ways most movies can't. First we see Zia cut his wrists to kill himself, and we're informed that he thinks "she" cried at his funeral. Obviously the she is his ex girlfriend/fiance.

After Zia kills himself he is sent to a parallel world where everything is the same, it just sucks a little. It more.

This is a world for all those who were unhappy and took their own lives. There he meets a new group of friends, a new love interest, even a whole family (wow) and begins to settle down. He learns that "she" killed herself not long after him, and sets out to find her.

This movie is filled with unsettling moments, brilliant dialogue, and cynically amusing flashbacks of how various people "offed themselves." Its a drama, comedy, romance and a farce all rolled into one potent bit of cinema. The major thing I likes is how each character is developed, even if only on screen for a total of five minutes, you get a real feel for who they are, which is rare in movies nowadays.

This movie is not appropriate for young children, but could be watched by them. There is nothing particularly grotesque, but the language is often coarse and the subject material is beyond most children anyway. I highly recommend this movie for... Well, anyone. I give it a rare A+!!

The official Matt Dippel seal of approval.
