Good Neighbors (2010)
Directed by: Jacob Tierney
Written by: Jacob Tierney and Chrystine Brouillet
The movie starts out slow. In fact I was ready to turn it off a few times. But it is just attempting to establish the plot I suppose. Almost the entire movie takes place in the apartment building in Montreal in the neighborhood of Notre Dame de Grace (I really don’t know why that is so special). Louise (Emily Hampshire) lives alone with 2 cats with which she has bonded. The crazy French lady upstairs hates her cats with a passion. Spencer (Scott Speedman) is a man bound to a wheelchair with a crazy love for fish that eat other living things, he’s not to big on the cats either because they tease his fish, also there are definitely some anger issues with him.
The new neighbor that moves in at the beginning of the film is Victor (Jay Baruchel) who is basically the same in this movie as he is in any film, spazy, nervous, weird, and has a crazy looking cat that he brought back from China(in the movie). Louise becomes obsessed with the serial killer that’s on the loose, this just becomes more so when her friend is killed by the serial killer(don’t worry that’s not a spoiler). Basically this is just another story of people contained in a small space trying to figure out who the killer is, I said at the beginning that the movie starts out slow but in truth the whole movie is slow and I found myself still waiting for things to happen. Might make for a rental if you really love Indie films and cats.
