11-year-old Mickey House is no longer a child. But who is he? He doesn’t know. He’s friendless. He doesn’t understand his mother. He hates what’s happening to his body. Reality and imagination come together in a toxic mix. Events escalate to extremes… at home and at school.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
Eschatological jokes are juvenile no matter how slick the cinematography. Enough with these graphic design-y hipster aesthetics! Kuba, you're definitely talented: how about making something substantial next? Drop the Jean Pierre Jeunet/Wes Anderson sycophantic homages and get busy. We love you.
I saw in Venice Salaweb last year. This movie's subject is "In adolescence, If you have a sexual desire for your parent...." People think that is grrrrrrrrrrrrooooos, but Dir don't ignore a boy's confusion & screaming "Most disgusting to me, NOT YOU!!!!!!" & depicts that situation with enjoyfully and grotesquely colorful American pop-culture style. Ostensibly nonsense, actually earnest look to a sexual drive.
Increíble parodia oscura de Jimiey the Cricket. El director ha usado todo (sangre, excremento, vómito, semen, etc) para transmitir un pesadillesca visión de la pubertad. Fantasías de suicidio y matricidio. Hay alguna esperanza para esta generación (baby bump) polaca? Parece que no.
Déroutant de prime abord par sa forme très maniérée et esthétisante, qui tient à distance des personnages, l'alchimie opère au fil du film. Plongée extrêmement puissante et imagée au sein des tourments identitaire de l'adolescence.
