Although I do not often watch indies, I was certainly impressed by this movie. I came across this movie while reading an article online, and the title got me curious. This movie is really ultra-low budget and really hard to find anywhere which is not unusual considering how little known it is and was also released some years ago. Luckily I managed to find it, and it was worth a find. The story is about David, his relationship with his family and his sister who returns home after a long absence. How relationships burden the choices we want to make has been explored well. The title 'Fighting Fish' describes both David, played by Val Emmich, and Alice, played by Anna Moore, who are fighting with their inner self and are struggling to cope with the responsibilities. The story seemed really earnest to me and I was particularly impressed by Emmich and Moore's performances. I do recommend this and wish that good low-budget movies are appreciated by the public. Making a good movie with a very low budget is a tremendously difficult job, these filmmakers deserve appreciation and better reception at box office.
