In this black comedy feature film, David Hemblen plays Richard, a filmmaker who recounts the events leading to his collapse into madness, beginning with the infestation of his home by rats. Continually down on his luck, he convinces a broadcaster to fund a documentary on rats, which to him represent his disintegrating life. His progress is continually interrupted by set backs and further rat infestations, until one night he discovers another documentary has beaten him to the punch.Written by
Rats is a truly interesting film as it shows what a fine line we walk between sanity and madness. The film takes a unique view on how a random events can have a domino effect on ones life. The movie is filled with interesting characters, some only entering scenes briefly, but you do not forget them. Also if the plot isn't enough, the accompanying soundtrack beautifully mirrors the emotions portrayed by the actors. It is also wonderful to see Canadian talent having an opportunity to show what they can do. If you appreciate movies that aren't your run of the mill Hollywood fluff you will appreciate Rats. It leaves the viewer with much to think about in their own lives.
