Wristcutters: A Love Story
It's a double whammy that befalls Zia, the star of novice director Goran Dukic's Wristcutters: A Love Story, a quirky-but-not-so-bad-it's-annoying indie film about three suicides bonding and falling in love in a godless limbo reserved for victims of self-harm.
There's Zia, the mooning dumpee, Eugene, a mutton-chopped Russian who electrocuted himself onstage by pouring beer on his electric guitar, and Mikal, who insists she hasn't committed suicide and roams the afterlife looking for a better class of dead.
When Zia discovers his former lady friend has topped herself he leaps in his car and vows to track her down. Alas, this being a film, he ends up falling for the alluring Mikal instead. Dead men, eh? When will they make their minds up?
Released today at selected cinemas across the UK.
