Over-familiar territory
20 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

I found this film disappointing after the director's previous short, 'Chicken'. Dignam might be working his way around the animal kingdom, but his film-making has taken a step backwards. The story of childhood sexuality seems far too familiar - the kind of territory we've seen over and over again at gay film festivals. If I watch another film with a small boy dressing up in women's clothes and playing with girls' toys I am very likely to scream! The film-making style is also disappointingly pedestrian. The film is not helped by so-so performances all round. Granted, I hadn't seen a ferret before in a gay film, but I really had expected more than this. Barry Dignam, if you're reading this, please re-visit the style and sensitivity of 'Chicken' - that was a real winner.
