Reviewed by: Angus Wolfe Murray
Nostalgia for a working-class Liverpudlian childhood turns sour, as recollections of the narrator's best friend reveal him in a different light. The charmer, the boy who could do anything because he had the brass neck and a twisted delight in scamming off defenseless disabled people, is seen as a manipulator, an arsonist and a thief.
Chris Shepherd experiments with a live action mix, using different disciplines of animation extremely cleverly. He reflects history's distorted mirror particularly well.
If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, truth is subjective and memory as dodgy as a 20 bob note.Reviewed on: 15 Feb 2004
