Storyline

"What does your paradise look like, then?" - "Dark. Quiet. Wet. And full of fish." Jan likes Shakespeare, water and fish. Nina likes roller-skates, cars and brightly dyed hair. Jan loves Nina. Nina loves Jan, but ... Do Fish Do It? is a film about first love, the problems of growing up, the vital question if fish have sex and a threat this love is exposed to. 16-year old Jan is absent-mindedly strolling through the streets when he's run over by roller-skating Nina. As fast as she has stormed into his life, however, she rushes off again. Nina is 15 years old and full of crazy ideas. She lives together with her brother, her father and his new girlfriend. Her mother isn't in touch much. That's why there is the unconventional Angel whose own daughter disappeared years ago and who is Nina's best friend and substitute mother. Jan is a little shy, with a sheltered upbringing. Yet the image of the perfect family is an illusion. Jan feels lonely and the only person who seems to understand him ... Written by press book

A perfect movie
6 December 2007 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I had been looking for this movie for a long time because my brother had seen it in a festival and told me how great it was. However, not even once during the time I spent searching for this movie did I read a summary of the plot, I had no idea of what the story was, I knew that the title meant 'Fucking Fish' or something like that but I never stopped thinking of what it would be about; so today as I was watching the movie I was becoming increasingly satisfied and surprised by the plot. It is a love story, but it is told in a magnificent way and due to the conditions of the relation it is not your average love story. Acting is amazing and the characters are easy to identify with. I'm not telling anything more, because I believe the best way to enjoy this movie is being unaware of it beforehand, let the movie take you by surprise.

I know this movie is not easy to get (at least in my country), so if you can get ahold of one copy, watch it and see for yourself why this is a beautiful and excellent story.
