The Toe Tactic doesn't amount to much more than its playful title implies, and it's as edgeless as can be, but there's a quiet power to its observations on the complicated schematics of human grief.

Depending on your tolerance for relentless whimsy and unflagging eccentricity, The Toe Tactic will make you gurgle with delight or groan with exasperation.

Not that a well-developed story arc is the chief aim here, but the screenplay is so quirky and unfocused that only in fleeting moments of emotional directness does the film make a real connection.

Mona's concerns and pleasures - from the regular avoidance of phone calls from her mother to the joy of a fresh hundred dollar bill - are as real and immediate as the floating dogs are fanciful and poetic.

It's originality at the expense of comprehensibility.
