Sundance 2010: Trailer Arrives For Habib Azar's ARMLESS
Adapted from Kyle Jarrow's play of the same name, Habib Azar's Armless will be taking its bow at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and the first trailer has just arrived. It's very much an indie but looks to be very compelling stuff as well. Check it below.Armless tells the story of a man who suffers from Body Integrity Identity Disorder. When he leaves his wife and goes to find a doctor willing to amputate his arms, it triggers a twisted romp filled with mistaken identities, missed chances, and tragic consequences. Armless utilizes the structure of a classic farce, combining it with a darkly philosophical tone. It also explores the ways in which a culture with so much wealth can come to fetishize suffering. But at its heart, Armless is a fable about acceptance-a meditation on trust, love and marriage.
