Neanderthal Mans Wild strawberries !!!
20 October 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie about an old mans retirement and his slide off the peak of reality into dreams about his childhood and many fantasy characters does remind u of a poor mans wild strawberries with very badly done surrealistic pieces where u can see the green chroma light fallin on the characters faces. The movie does pose a question as to whether its the boy who is dreaming about his old age death or is it the old man who is dreaming about his childhood before he dies.It does have good poetry, few sonnets, few word plays n joycean fascination for long words but thats about it. it becomes boring, pretentious n even tries to attack its audience who walks out on it by including a scene on people who watch movies only for entertainment laughed upon by beethoven.haha. the last dialogue on bullet belonged to a Tarantino film which a gangster would regale before condemning someone to death. The film at sometimes had the seriousness of a mr.bean film. Though for its attempts at being wild strawberries and instead becoming boring sour grapes....i would give it 4/10
