If you haven't seen this film yet, run out and try and find a copy. It is probably one of the best films out there - no stipulations - not best "Canadian" film, not best "indie" film and not best "end of the world" film. I don't want to spoil anything - but the rooftop scene between Don McKellar and Sandra Oh - heartwrenching.
An theater major and genious director at my college did a stage adaptation of this movie. It was amazingly good!
I am still haunted by this movie months after I saw it on IFC for the first time. I was so moved I got the DVD and the movie soundtrack. This movie tears at the soul of human nature and exposes the worst and the best of the human race. This isn`t a move for someone who thrives on action or is easily bored, this movie is for people who think and share empathy for the plight of other humans in desperate circumstances.
I thought this film said a lot about human nature and how we really would react to the end of the world.
