'Waterloo' is the story of two lonely people, traumatized by violence, finding solace in one another. Montgomery is the recent survivor of an office shooting; Molly a survivor of domestic abuse. They live in an old gloomy walk up in an industrial urban setting, a sort of Candy Land on acid. The colors of the world are dark and saturated evoking a beauty touched by darkness; the discordant sounds merge and melt together, forming one constant cacophonous assault. The film explores the cycles of PTSD and how the possibilities of romance and tenderness are affected by the violent certainties of our urban culture. The title refers to the Battle of Waterloo, meaning 'absolute ruin'.
