Matt Manfredi, Phil Hay


Edition 2003
88' - 2002 - Comedy - Dialogue: English
Director: Matt Manfredi, Phil Hay Composer: Theodore Shapiro With: Brian Cox, Michael Hitchcock, John Carroll Lynch, Jamie Kennedy
In the hip, urban Los Angeles neighbourhood of Silverlake, strangers with apparently nothing in common interact with humor, love, rage, fear and generosity. Beginning with the death of a bug, each of these strangers' actions starts a wild chain of events. The story includes lovers who break up and return, a deranged restaurant owner, a blue-collar worker who wants to save innocent creatures and people, a horribly cheerful ticket-writing meter maid, and a fortune-cookie designer who suffers from mood swings, all leading to one surprising conclusion. The force of cause-and-effect links these characters unwittingly in a common web of destiny. In this six-degrees-of-separation story, all actions have consequences and the results prove to be happily unexpected.
