Storyline

Jack Flinter is skating on thin ice. Known to his friends as "Flick", he is drifting through life, dealing a bit of hash, drinking and screwing around. His girlfriend Alice has had enough. His friend and business partner Des is strung out, his behavior increasingly unpredictable. Their latest scam has them in over their heads. He meets Isabelle, a German woman visiting the city and the resulting story takes place over a few days and nights when all Jack's chickens come home to roost. His life spinning out of control, he has to make a decision - sink or swim. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The film was shot in 18 days on a budget of 18,000. According to Connolly "We put together a compact crew - first-timers like ourselves - and we shot the film in eighteen days, mostly within a three mile radius of O'Connell Bridge. We tried to follow some basic guidelines we had culled together from reading and hearing about low-budget film-making - namely, you write a script with a couple of characters in one location; you do an inventory of availability; you make it fit your budget; you rehearse well, talk everything through; you spend the money on getting the best gear you can afford; you keep the shoot tight - three weeks maximum; you use locations that are free; you keep to a twelve-hour day, six day week; you shoot a ratio of 6/1 and you keep away from people who say it can't be done."

Another reviewer compared this film's pace to a soap opera's. I think that's appropriate commentary, but it only captures part of the problem.

The film is about a couple of novice drug dealers so I suppose it's reasonable that they lack the look and demeanor of real criminals. Unfortunately, so also does every other character in the film. The "big time" drug buyers look like spongy, average business people rather than sinister, dangerous organized criminals. Not one of them looks like he or she could buy drugs, let alone distribute them. In a film with terrible scenery, props, and wardrobe, it takes a lot of work on the part of the actors to keep the film convincing. This film's actors lack the character to make this a convincing film about (even small-time) crime.

Other areas of disappointment are cinematography, lightning, and music. Each detract from whatever substance the film has.

I'd pass on this one: there are plenty of low-budget gangster moves to choose from that are both less boring and more assuring.
