Films: Suicide victims seek love in limbo

Despite their focus on death and suicide, Etgar Keret's stories keep finding new life after publication -- from foreign reprints to re-imaginings as graphic novels and films. The latest of those incarnations, the award-winning independent film, "Wristcutters: A Love Story," has finally landed U.S. distribution with After Dark Films's sister distributor, Autonomous Films, and is in limited release -- opening today in Los Angeles. The debut feature film from Los Angeles-based Croatian director Goran Dukic is based on Keret's 1998 short story, "Kneller's Happy Campers," a surrealist road story following three suicide victims searching limbo for a lost love.
