Bliss
Based on Peter Carey's highly imaginative first novel, Ray Lawrence's (Lantana, Jindabyne) surreal black comedy still retains its caustic bite.

Advertising executive Harry Joy (Barry Otto) suffers a heart attack, 'dies' for four minutes, and returns to find his life has taken a sharp dive in the direction of hell.

On a weekend bender Harry meets 'flower child' Honey Barbara, and discovers that he has a second chance.
