Product Description

15-year-old Tracey Berkowitz is naked under a tattered shower curtain at the back of a bus, looking for her little brother Sonny, who thinks he's a dog. Tracey's journey leads us into the dark underbelly of the city, into the emotional cesspool of her home, through the brutality of her
high school, the clinical cat and mouse games with her shrink and her soaring fantasies of Billy Zero - her boyfriend and rock 'n' roll saviour. Tracey's stories begin to intertwine truth with lies, hope with despair as we move closer to the truth of Sonny's disappearance.

I am a HUGE fan of Ellen Page, so I was always going to watch this movie regardless of wether it was any good or not. Visually, it is stunning. Much use is made of split-screen, with different scenes playing out at the same time. This will no doubt represent Tracey's fragmented mind.

The story, such as it is, the search for Tracey's brother, leads us into a bleak and desolate Canadian landscape that is so cold I could almost feel my breath freezing as I watched. There is a dream like quality to the narrative; what is real and what is imagined? You will be dazzled and confused by this film, and only at the very end do we find out what has happened to Tracey's brother.

This is very much an 'experimental' movie, but no worse for that. Ellen Page is outstanding as Tracey. She should become a big star in the near future. If you like bang crash wallop flims, or chick flicks, this isn't for you. If you don't mind watching a film and thinking 'what was all that about?' once in a while, give a go. (I have since been told that reading the book before seeing the movie makes it easier to follow, but I have not done that yet)!

This movie seems to get a lot of bad press for no reason. It's very indie and very low budget, but that's part of the charm. Bruce McDonald directs it brilliantly with a very odd approach (the film is literally in fragments, with the screen occupied with 4 or 5 little screens at once) and Ellen Page is truly stunning. She has never been more amazing than in this heart-breaking mood piece.

The plot itself, revolves around the life of Tracey Berkowitz "just a 15 year old girl who hates herself" and her attempts to find her lost brother Sonny, who thinks he's a dog. It's definitely not a movie for everyone, but once you relax into the wispy tone and become really mesmerised by Ellen Page, it's a very rewarding watch. The price for the standard DVD is surprisingly high, but this is due to it's rarity, and it's impossible to find 'New' anywhere apart from good ol' Amazon. If you're an avid movie watcher and you like the more off-the-wall style flicks, and are a fan of Ellen Page, this is a must. I've seen it 3 times already.

This title should be a warning, who cannot live without a happy ending story and who need their stories told strictly in the order they happened.
This movie is working hard at really not being linear and to give you bits and pieces in order of importance, as the protagonist tells you her story. Not a happy story, i repeat.
I can whole-heartedly recommend the movie. It is a good story and visually very much alive and keeping you on the edge.

Bruce Robinson is a name to watch out for - Supposedly his latest film (Pontypool) is also rather good, and in a market currently saturated by awful low-budget Horror pap, this is something of an anomaly. But what of his previous film, The Tracey Fragments? Forget for a moment that we're talking Canadian Indie here... The only "Canadian Indie" films of note are the surreal Silent fantasies of Guy Maddin, so a pedigree such as this is not to be envied. But still, The Tracey Fragments is a good film, one that creeps up on you like a Blind Albino Alligator and bites you on your backside.

Those in the know may remember the Mike Figgis film, Timecode from a good few years back - The film simultaneously showed us four scenes at once, forcing us to divide our attention between four protagonists at the same time. Robinson attempts to take this one step further (whilst really taking one step back, character-wise) by attempting to represent Tracey's fragmented psyche on screen. Her brother, Sonny, thinks he's a dog - somewhere along the way he's gone missing, and Tracey has apparently run away and found herself amongst the dregs of Ontario society... The film takes it from there and by examining the fragments we are presented with, the background story of how events conspired to reach such a nadir becomes clear. The main problem of displaying a story through so many portals at the same time, quite a great deal of subliminal plot is probably lost - Perhaps it was the director's intention to pull us back to view the movie a number of times? You can watch Shane Carruth's Primer over again as many times as you like, it'll still be incomprehensible.

Awful awful film. Had to study it at uni for its fragmented narrative, but just dreadful. The ending redeems it slightly, but seriously do not bother!
