Is it possible to buy a DVD or video of the movie
16 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

I would like to buy a copy of this movie - do you know if a commercial DVD or video of it has been produced? It is an excellent movie whose comedy is built upon an almost relentless stretching of the norms and logic of everyday life. It is also, amidst its comic approach, thought-provoking - for example the question of whether having a transplanted heart might affect your life view of the norms of death and its rites. There is no fear of the incongruous in this production; for example the Japanese girl on the train bears no relevance to the main plot, nor even any logical subplot - but the movie is none the poorer for this apparent tangential scene.
