Actor John Waters once said of his sex symbol image and this movie: "The sex-symbol thing doesn't mean much. The image relates to the role played. I can't see Rabbit [his character in this film] getting the tag! That's one of the reasons I like the part. It's totally different although I'm not being over-exposed as my roles so far are sufficiently different". See more »
This is one of the top films of the late seventies. It is a real sleeper, as not many people will have had the opportunity to witness its charms in an actual cinema. I believe it shows great insight into character and the human condition. John Waters gives a finely restrained performance and the balance of tragedy to comedy is deftly worked. A terrific piece along the possible lines of Whistle Down the Wind - Bryan Forbes film starring Alan Bates. Well worth the effort. Enjoy your cinema. Andy
