Storyline

Pig and Runt - born on the same day, in the same hospital, moments apart. Twins, all but by blood. Inseparable from birth, they are almost telepathic. They are also partners in crime, with an appetite for recklessness, exploration and destruction. But days before their 17th birthday the perfect balance of their world begins to shift. Pig's sexual awakening and increasing jealousy begins to threaten the private universe they have spent their lives constructing. Unable to contemplate the loss of Runt, Pig's unpredictable nature spirals out of control in a trail of violence. The invisible thread between them is stretched to breaking point, the inseparable are about to separate, and which one will survive depends on which one can break free. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

During the flashback to Sinéad being spanked by her father Ger Canning can be heard commentating on a hurling game between Cork and Kilkenny, mentioning the names of DJ Carey, Henry Shefflin, Charlie Carter and Diarmuid O' Sullivan, who would only played with and against each other in 1999 at the earliest. The flashback was obviously intended to have been set long before then. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Runt: Once upon a time, before there was any blue, I'd take a long long nap in a brand new home. This place, it's like I make up my mind to stay in this lovely warm pink room. The thumpity thump of the heart. My only true path. I tell the noisy world outside to fuck off with all your play-actin', for Runt. She go no where, for no one. That was a time when silence was some sort of friend.
Runt: But then my mom would heave and wake all inside. And Runt, she wakes up, cause a baby can't stay ...

This film describes the words soul mates perfectly (well, almost!)
11 January 2005 | by k-middlemissSee all my reviews

I saw this film a few weeks ago and was totally fascinated by it from the beginning. The characters are so sweet. The story is about how two people are bound to each other from when they were little. They will let nothing come between them. Soul mates from the start. The film takes you on a journey through their lives and follows the relationship as they grow older. My favourite bit was where the little boy just waited, waited so long for his friend to come home. It was perfect, summing up the whole film. Some of the film is a bit violent so brace yourself if you are going to watch it, but don't let that put you off because the film as a whole is what i can only describe as beautiful. This movie is a must for every one, just watch it once and you'll probably be thinking about it forever.
