is it 'normal'
25 May 1999 | by (netherlands) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at a friend's house. She taped it and popped it in and poured coffee. First shot we see Suzy skipping home from school, she comes home to a (seemingly) normal family. We soon learn that her father has just lost his job thus losing his manhood (?), his mother is a little weird (Indian books, she seems to be a model), her brother is in love with a girl, but she is a rocker and he is a mud, that doesn't mix with the girl's (ex?) boyfriend and her other brother is lost in Jimi Hendrix' music and ways (read: smoking the funny stuff)

The movie evolves into a portrait of a 'typical' family with its typical problems: The father abuses Suzy, she gets coldshouldered by her brothers, her mother just 'wants to have a good time'...

One day she schemes herself into the room of Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithfull, pretending to be a friend of Marianne's, she gets kissed by Mick and, well, this is a dream come true for her, but the people around her don't believe her or dón't care...

The end of the movie is, well, a little disturbing, the big brother's rat gets killed, as an act of vengeance he makes soup of the his mother's turtle and serves this, and as they are eating tells them what it is, his mother is obviously disgusted as is Suzy, his bro thinks it tastes good as does his father, but he does punish him, after that mother and father take a stroll through the park like nothing happened. Suzy wants to escape the situation and we see her sharing a doobie with her brother.

a sober movie set in the early sixties, sober is the way to describe this movie, sober and good...
