They come at night and everybody steps out. They light torches and remember those who have walked these streets before them. In the coming hours, the city will be on lockdown: an eclipse appears and meteors start to fall.

A fantasized portrayal of Polish auteur Walerian Borowczyk: Boro in the Box discovers a cruel and obscene world. He experiences banal yet colorful adventures, caressing erotic birds and organic cameras in a phantasmagorical Alphabet.
Rikard is an autistic and severely deformed man who was separated from his mother at birth. Thirty years later he is convinced that he will get her back if only he wins the Scandinavian Championship of pétanque. He tries to do the impossible. His fragile physique and a harsh judging environment are not going to stop him. Plus there is a 200 foot giant on his side.
I have always craved for crime flicks from all over the world: America, UK, Europe, Israel, Asia, Iran, Australia, and of course Africa. And this film is among the best for me. The tale of a young man and hoodlum who decides to get involved in the drug traffic, high scale traffic, to at last get out from poverty. It is a social crime feature, so realistic and played in the best manner. Actors are excellent, and you have here a shooting sequence aboard a car which is far better than most US made ones, a so realistic scene that glues you to your seat. You find here the rise and fall scheme of a hoodlum, which you have in most gangster movies from all over the planet since so many years. A real must see. Far better than Hollywood billion dollars super heroes craps.
