Karen Bo Baren,
Guiseppe Andrews stars as Coney Island, a young man who is dealing with a lot of the issues facing today's youth: divorce, unemployment, sexual inadequacy and a gigolo father who has just been released from prison! Ever the optimist, Coney Island spends his days singing songs of hope to senior citizens and riding miniature broncos at his favorite playground. Pushed by his unfulfilled girlfriend to grow up, Coney Island turns to Daddy Bill (Bill Nowlin) for advice in the ways of love, embarking on a grotesque and wildly hilarious journey of self discovery.Written by
I believe that Giuseppe Andrews is a total genius. This movie, along with the "After School Specials" on the DVD release from Troma are the most original pieces of work I have ever seen. They are not for everybody-I think you definitely have to have a very open mind to enjoy his work. Touch Me In The Morning is almost like a home movie...these people that Giuseppe has brought into his life seem to just be themselves, and in turn, he's showing those lives to us. The storyline is very believable, maybe a little extreme sometimes, but very believable as we see Coney Island's fears, self-doubts, and relationships. I wouldn't call this a comedy, although some scenes were absolutely hilarious. But it's also a dark, sometimes scary odyssey through Coney's life. It's a spectacular movie, especially considering Giuseppe was only 20 years old when he made it.
