Storyline

The UK is about to switch its currency from Pounds to Euros, giving a gang a chance to rob the poorly-secured train loaded with money on its way to incineration. But, during the robbery, one of the big bags falls literally from the sky on Damian's playhouse, a 7-year old given to talking to saints. The boy then starts seeing what the world and the people around him are made of. Ethics, being human and the soul all come to the forefront in this film. Written by Reuben Cogo

Trivia

Damian favourite book is called "Six O'Clock Saints". Popular in the UK in the 1950s, it is surprising that any parent would give a copy to their child, as the screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce points out at 03:08 in the DVD commentary, since it contains all the gruesome stories that Damian tells in class, plus many more. Its inclusion is a sort of homage to Martin Scorsese, who, according to Boyce, has cited it in interviews as one of his favorite books growing up and that it gave him a wider understanding of the human experience than had been revealed to him as a child. Roger Ebert's 18 March 2005 review of the film, mentions that Boyce "got the inspiration for the screenplay from an interview in which Martin Scorsese said he was reading the lives of the saints."

Goofs

The film is set around Christmas in England. Yet shadows are relatively short indicating the time of shooting to be summer. The pupils in the playground are not wearing warm clothing, which they would if it were winter. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Damian Cunningham: [voiceover] The French have said au revoir to the franc, the Germans have said auf wiedersehen to the mark, and the Portuguese have said... whatever to their thing.

Best, most relevant, movie I have ever seen
20 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

I am a 52 year old man with 3 kids, working in the business world. Being reminded about the importance of goodness is something I needed. I have seen the movie 4 times, my wife has seen it 7 times. I cry every time. The movie will help me to be a better person. A movie has never had a "true" impact on my life before. I found the characters, charming, warm, and realistic. I truly thank Mr Boyce, Mr Boyle, the cast and the crew for this movie. I tell all of my friends about the movie, hoping it helps them in the same way. I know this sounds "sophmoric" but so be it. It should be very rewarding to those involved in the movie to know that their message was heard and it will change the way at least one person leads his life.
