Storyline

The life of 6th grader Terkel changes drastically when he causes the suicide of a girl who has a crush on him when he call her a fat cow. Suddenly he not only has to deal with his annoying little sister, his one-word father (No!), his mother's bizarre rants and his alcoholic and violent uncle Stewart, now he also has to deal with death threats from a stalker and his best friend distancing himself. On the plus side his two bullies think he is awesome and there is a new cool teacher, and he can of course always ask his uncle Stewart for help - kind of. It all culminates in a school trip.

Entertaining with a morbid twist.
28 August 2007 | by R (rwaite44)See all my reviews

I found the movie quite a surprising piece of artistic work. If you enjoy the Tim Burton animations such as Nightmare Before Christmas you will enjoy this one. Bewarned this is a little more darker and also has its own take on animation. Watch for the small details, such as eyes, eye lid movements, lips to express feelings. Fantastic! The story line becomes an unexpected mild mystery/horror, with a few short twisted musical numbers thrown in. Overall, its was unusual but kept me entertained and watching. I didn't really walk away with anything but amusement. I guess that's what it was all about. Definitely worth watching.
