Storyline

Brothers Martin and Simon, not yet teens, are incorrigible vandals; Martin runs away from reform school, Simon from foster homes, and they always find each other in a seacoast town of Lignan, where their destructive behavior is infamous. (It may date to their mother's leaving the family.) Martin is philosophical, romantic, and poetic: he dreams of being the son of a shark; he holds tight to a book about goldfish his mother gave him. In both halting and wild ways, he tries to court Marie, a neighbor girl. Simon, with a pocketknife and an intractable will, seems more dangerous to others. What, on earth, is there for these children-becoming-men? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Shocking!
7 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

Great film!.....or should I say crazy film! This is a good film, that has a lot of meaning. It has the shock value of 'Man Bites Dog' and is definitely worth seeing. Certain scenes reminded me of 'Romper Stomper' the younger years. I give this film ***1/2 (out of four
