A Charles Bukowski poem is put to animation. Four kids who are friends are drawn to a strange house that their parents tell them to avoid. One day they see a man of about 30 step outside, cigar and whiskey bottle in hand. He becomes a symbol for them of all that is strong, natural, and beautiful. What happens later to this man with the beautiful eyes introduces the boys to the gray and uptight world of adulthood that awaits them. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

kinda creepy
13 September 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film, like another reviewer pointed out, is a bit like Kurosawa's RASHOMON in that the story is told two ways--from the standpoint of the parents and from the kids. What the truth is really isn't explained. A decent idea, but some of the plot seemed creepy and the animation, while original, is also rather hard on the eyes.

Kids in the neighborhood are told to stay away from a house that is overgrown and spooky. However, one day the kids come by this house and see a man with a bottle of alcohol wander outside after he and his partner were screaming at each other. The kids see him as a great example of "a natural man" and he says hi to the kids. Later, when the place burns down, the kid reasons that his parents must have done it because they were jealous and intimidated by this "natural man". Yeah, whatever. He just seemed like some sort of creeper to me and I didn't get this film at all...
