Wristcutters: A Love Story(2006)

While the premise sounds pretty depressing, "Wristcutters: A Love Story" is a warm and surprisingly uplifting love story told through unconventional means. The desaturated, bizarre purgatory presented here has its odd charms, including tiny miracles that occur when people aren't paying attention to their misery and a black hole that somehow exists beneath the passenger seat of Eugene's car. It plays like a very dark road trip movie, with the characters repeatedly getting frustrated with one another's motivations and petty nonsense. Eugene takes his flirting way too far, Zia's mooning for his ex is borderline creepy, and Mikal enjoys stealing "no shoplifting" signs and breaking every man-made rule she possibly can. They're each a bit intense in their own way, but somehow they make a charming trio.

As Mikal searches for the people in charge and Zia looks for his lost love, the two start falling for one another. It's a bizarre idea, to fall in love after you're already dead, so both of them try to ignore their feelings.

And then Zia discovers that his beloved girlfriend, Desiree, has also 'offed herself' (the afterlife euphemism for suicide), so together with his crazy Russian friend Eugene (a splendidly exuberant Shea Wigman), he sets off on an impromptu road trip through the dusty wastelands of the underworld outback to track her down. But on the way, the unlikely duo encounter a feisty hitchhiker, Mikal (Shannyn Sossamon), who's convinced she's here by mistake and is in search of the People In Charge so she can make her case and return home. And suddenly, Zia's world doesn't seem so grim, as he realises it's never too late to start living, even after you're dead. 041b061a72
