Four men are gathered in a theatre where they enact a twisted version of Peter Pan, singing songs to tell their stories, their wishes and their fears. They are aided by a talented but mysterious cast. It becomes apparent that the men are engaged in a dangerous game with their own mortality. When one of the men falls in love with the leading lady, the rules of the game are threatened, but the men's overarching desire to transcend their worlds and feel complete - once expressed - can never be controlled. Three of the men must experience what it is like to die, and for the other, the opposite.Written by
Might have been better left at the soundtrack album stage.
Miscast and pretentious, this well-meaning film ticks few of the boxes I hoped for it. Blame my expectations? Maybe.
Megan Washington, though brilliant in her own right, is badly miscast here as the siren.
Brilliant cinematography can't quite overcome weak concept and over ambitious direction.
Like Moulin Rouge - This might have been better left as a soundtrack album than a full-length feature.
