The paperboy Simon (Kevin Zegers) is alone in the world and has only the company of his father Milt (William Forsythe), for whom Simon has very confused feelings, from fear to love and respect. After a successful bank robbery with his partner Fury (Colm Meaney), Milt changes the bag with money with Simon`s paper bag, but he is shot in the runaway and dies. Simon escapes from Fury with the stolen money without knowing his father was dead. On the road, he meets Chrystal (Lolita Davidovich), a woman who has just left her husband, and gets a lift with her until a hotel nearby a lake. The chase of Fury ends in a very unpredictable way. I did not like this movie: it was a great disappointment for me, since I expected much more than offered. The story has no clichés, which is a positive point. The characters are mostly very weird and the situations bizarre, the performance of the cast is great, but something is missing in the screenplay to satisfy me. I believe the director has not expressed sufficiently well to make me really understand the underlines of the plot. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): `4 Dias Alucinantes' (`4 Crazy Days')
