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

During the house-building sequence at the beginning of the film, the Moon is seen rising behind the house, but it moves upwards to the left. As the film is set in England (in the northern hemisphere), it should rise towards the right. See more »

A misunderstood picture
26 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From reading the comments, I wouldn't judge this movie by the trailer. It really doesn't reflect what the movie is about. Just the way Fox cut it.

The ideas of the Euro and Money in general are really just used as creative tools. The real plot is quite brilliant, telling a great story of a very pure heart, a young boy and his brother. These two kids did an amazing job, one of which has had no previous experience.

I was fortunate enough to attend a special screening where Mr. Boyle showed up (San Fran). Thanks! I wish more directors did this :) I found it quite entertaining, funny, light and complex. A great way to relax after a long day of flying.

I commend Danny for trying something different, on the opposite spectrum compared to 28 Days and Shallow Grave.

A great movie for 2005!
