Far-fetched
9 April 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Although interesting in concept and shot beautifully, exactly why everybody goes nuts for a ten-year old winning a butt-numb-a-thon is a complete mystery to me. As this is crucial to the development of the story, everything that happens after that feels too far-fetched to get the reaction the filmmakers obviously had in mind.

Constructed in a flash-back story mode, the movie kicks off with the message that the main character has spent sixty years of his life devoted to the well-being of his fellow man. What follows is the story of a man who ignores the pleas for help of his father and wife to be, and as his motivations for spending week after week sitting on a pole are never quite explained properly, you loose interest in the main character rather than getting close to him.

Good cast, nice acting, but all in all too unbelievable to keep focused on for almost two hours.
