A slow film that really isn't worth watching

This film seem like it should be a interesting film but it just doesn't get there. It follows an ice-cream van driver and soap opera fans life over a few months. During his work he meets one of the actors from the soap show and he has to put up with cruel people.

I would have to disagree with another review up here that claims it is similar to Bad Boy Bubby, which I loved. The only similarities I see is that they are both Australian films in which you feel sorry for the main character. In Bad Boy Bubby I was hanging on to see what would happen next because it kept you enthralled but in Chocolate Strawberry Vanilla I was just waiting for something of interest to happen.

The film feels like it is trying to do something that it has not achieved and as a result ended up as a slow boring drama that doesn't hold the viewers attention. I saw it listed as a dark comedy but found almost nothing in the film funny. I do not feel the need to watch this again and personally I would recommend watching something else over this.

Tricked by good reviews

Several times now I've watched a film that just does not measure up to the glowing reviews. I really need to hit the 'Love/Hate' filter more often to get a balanced opinion before investing my time.

CSV is not a good film. I'm an Aussie and I find a lot of our B- grade films pretty hard to sit through, and this one is yet another addition to the 'crap' pile. The acting and direction is not the problem here, it's definitely the writer and producer at fault.

The whole film is repressed and undefined. You are just about screaming for the payoff while suffering through some pretty cringe-worthy scenes, all the while hoping some epic retribution is coming.

It's just too damn slow. Warren's slow descent into madness might be interesting to some, but as a low-budget black comedy, it misses the critical entertainment mark by a mile.

Depressing, confronting, awkward. These are not great words of recommendation, especially when there are no redeeming qualities to take the sting off. Who was responsible for taking out the fun bits? Death by ice-cream truck was such a missed opportunity. Why leave the whore and her piece of crap son alive? I badly wanted them to die.

It doesn't even resonate as a weird cult movie like 'BAD BOY BUBBY'. Such a shame as it certainly could have made that grade with only a few small tweaks.

Don't waste your time with this movie.

Cool Australian DIY cinema

An Australian b-movie! This low budget feature concerns the shy and socially awkward Warren that runs an ice cream truck. Being the product of heavy bullying and social isolation (seen through his own in-camera confessions), he is obsessed with a television actress of a local TV-show and gets completely euphoric when she shows up at his van to buy some ice cream. In the meanwhile he encounters several people who mock him or are themselves quite weird. After numerous setbacks, Warren gets Travis Bickle-like crazy. Luckily, the pretty predictable plot and rather conventional cinematography are outweighed by the authentic DIY feeling and an awesome over-the-top performance by Glenn Maynard (Warren), but it's too close to make a real impression. It seems like Maynard and Addison Heath (the writer of Chocolate Strawberry Vanilla) are on an underground crusade though. After their collaboration on this movie, two others will follow: Under a Kaleidoscope and Bubblegum: A Detective Story. I wonder how those will turn out to be!
