Dag: I appreciate your comments on REGENERATION. I believe it is one of a number of movies which are internationally produced/financed these days, and as such certainly had British participation as well as Canadian. The film was nominated in several categories in the Genies, the Canadian equivalent of the Oscars, so that's why I termed it Canadian. No doubt it's a baby with several parents!
