Handyman is a succinct little Canadian film dealing with those who never get what they really want because they don't know how. The title character, played by Jocelyn Berube, has convinced himself that no woman will have anything to do with him. We are shown that Berube could end his loneliness in a minute if he'd only speak up for himself. When he finally does get up the gumption to begin a romance, it's with a married woman who is as self-defeating as he. The Handyman is a film that definitely deserves a wider distribution than the wine-and-cheese circuit.
