Maggie? Rainbow? Leeward and Mary cannot even agree on their three year old daughter's name anymore. Mary is a hardworking nurse who dreams of only one thing: changing her life. She resents her husband for being an irresponsible, overgrown adolescent, incapable of holding down a job. Leeward is an atypical, idealistic musician who fancies himself a misunderstood artist and a New Age visionary. Enter Lilas, a 19 year old French artist and the daughter of a world famous painter, who is trying to make it in New York and get away from an overbearing mother. When the bubbly young woman moves into the couple's tiny Chinatown apartment, their already fragile balance is upset even further. Between surrealism, unusual characters, art and magic tricks, Swim Little Fish Swim is a dreamlike journey from childhood to adulthood. Written by Les Films de la Fusée

Boring twee flop
14 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

I didn't like it because it seemed like it was too full of itself. I enjoyed some of the actors' portrayals and some moments elicited laughter, however for the most part it seemed a masturbatory affair about clichés regarding New York, musicians, artists, idealism = uselessness, young couples and their troubles, with some irreverent twee magic "surrealism" monologues which are actually the only good moments in the film. You will probably like this film if you wear no socks with shoes, have moustache wax, a collection of vintage cameras and/or a couple Belle & Sebastian albums. An utterly missable watch. I do wish a lot of young film makers would be more critical or aware of glaring and objectifying clichés running rampant throughout their work, rather than ham- fistedly wielding them like rubber chickens while flogging the movie-watching public with their excretions on cinema. The delineation between sincerity, sarcasm and irony is far too subtle and haphazard for my tastes. In the end they took my money, so I'm feeling a bit violated right now.
