Storyline

An unseen man recalls four days of his youth when he came of age. He is Simon, in mid teens, in awe of his father who's planned a robbery with the down-and-out Fury. Dad double-crosses Fury, using Simon in a switch of the bag of cash. Unknown to Simon, however, a bank guard later shoots dad dead and wounds Fury. Simon leaves Ontario, as planned, heading for a remote Québec town. When Fury discovers the money gone, he follow Simon with the aid of Simon's neighbor, Feather, who's been dad's lover. En route to Quebec, Simon is picked up by Chrystal, a wild woman who's just left her husband. They all meet beside a lake for a final sorting out of money and relationships.

A Very Disappointing Movie
3 April 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

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')
