"Characters dressed in period costume, special effects (Sheila McCarthy flying across the Toronto sky or hanging on to skyscrapers), colour (Polly's recent past) alternating with black and white (her dreams, with the exception of the one when, after taking her vengeance on Gabrielle, she pictures herself as an orchestral conductor—in Technicolor) and with video tape (the depressing reality of being yet again an out-of-work secretary), all kinds of small but engaging and even outrageous details give a certain flair to the film which was shot in 23 days on a budget of $350,000."
