IT WAS YOU CHARLIE is a dark comedy-drama that tells the story of a lonely graveyard shift doorman named ABNER, a once-accomplished sculptor and former college art teacher, but now sadly, a mere shadow of his former self. He is heartbroken because of an unresolved conflict with his brother over a woman he once loved, and is at the same time consumed with guilt and suicidal thoughts as he remains profoundly haunted a year after a terrible car accident that took the life of the young woman in the other vehicle. After meeting ZOE, a young, free-spirited taxi driver, something magical happens to Abner as he begins a quest to seek redemption, and reconcile his conflicted past. Written by Anonymous

Dreary, boring, dull
9 January 2015 | by graham_watkinsSee all my reviews

I don't get why the cast and crew made or released this film, it was terrible. Nothing happened nor pretended to happen, it was just dull. Do yourself a favour and watch something else, like paint drying, it'll be more exciting and at least you'll know nothing will happen. The main character was supposed to be boring and that was achieved but why would you film a movie where the main character is supposed to be boring and more than lives up to expectation. You could equate the main character as a Mister Bean type but without the humour. This film gets put in the same pile as Being John Malcovich and Abducted as films I didn't finish because they were so poor. Do yourself a favour and watch something else.
