More Realistic than "Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down"

This slow-paced film is an interesting take on a traditional kidnapping story, a girl who does not want to figure out the next step in her life so she tries to kill herself. Her rescuer? A man without his meds, seeing his estranged wife on the face of the stranger. Quickly catching on to his delusional state, the kidnap victim toys with her mentally unstable kidnapper to lessen the severity of her situation. It is clear from the start, however, that she is not wholly unhappy, perhaps due to the circumstances that brought her to this point. Her attempts to escape are almost token, as though she knows she should leave but cannot bring herself to. This take on an abductee falling for the abductor is different enough to recommend. Even if you dislike the film Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down like I do, you just may enjoy this variation on a theme.

Surprisingly good debut feature, funny and strange

Though the story seems a bit familiar at first, the execution and the acting are this film's main strengths. It's a story about a guy who rescues a woman from committing suicide and then takes her to his remote house where we learn he has mistaken her for his missing wife. You guesses it, he's off his rocker. At this point I was circumspect about where the rest of the film would go, but kudos to the writer (whose also the director), it really took off when they were alone together in the house. The two lead actors are very good and could easily be the next Australian exports. At times they were funny, charming, mean, clever, dumb, unattractive and sexy - they are both pretty good looking. A couple of the minor supporting actors were a bit weak, but the one who played the sister was really good too. I liked Puppy because it was unpredictable.There were a few scenes that were pretty rude but that's Australians! The film is beautifully shot - not your low budget crappy production qualities - real film, real sound and a nice score. If you like stories with alternative narratives (like Almodovar) then you'll be able to go along for the ride.

Two Thumbs and a few fingers

This is a very funny, very odd, intoxicating little film. It sucks you in and then it spits you out not sure if you should be feeling so good about such morally questionable people and their very strange relationship. It reminded me a bit of Secretary in the way that it's an unusual love story but this goes a bit further because I'm not sure it's really a love story in the end or just two people who end up in a relationship built on lies and manipulation. No idea why it's so charming given this predicament, but a lot comes down to excellent performances and the way the film is shot - very nice sequences and moody.
