You have to love Etgar Keret. Wristcutters, based on a Keret short story, looks like it actually translates Keret’s freshness to the screen.

Wristcutters is a great example of adaptation of story to film. What a film and what a story!!I have loved Edgar Keret from the moment he started writing stories… This one came from his collection of short stories “The Busdriver Who Wanted to Be God” (Toby Press $12.95). (The last story in this volume “Kneller’s Happy Campers” is the story that Wristcutters was based upon.) I can recommend it to everyone!
