A brilliant debut

Lynne Ramsay's debut feature is a stylish, gritty slice of realism that is so strikingly shot you forget that you're watching a film. I wish I hadn't took so long to get around to seeing Ratcatcher, that is my only regret.

Description: Glasgow, summer, 1973. Dustmen are striking; bags of garbage add to the blight of council flats and a fetid canal. Ryan, who's about 12, drowns during a play fight with his neighbor, the jug-eared James. James runs home, a flat where he lives with his often-drunk da, his ma, and sisters, who live in hope of moving to newly-built council flats. The slice-of-life, coming-of-age story follows James as he tags along with the older lads; has a friendship with his quirky wee rodent-loving neighbor, Kenny; spends time with Margaret Anne, myopic, slightly older, the local sexual punching bag; and, has a moment or two of joy.

"5.6. Lapsuuden viattomuus ja viattomuuden särkyminen. Valtava salaisuus kalvaa Jamesia sisältä, ja salaisuuden pitämisellä on hintansa painavamman trauman. Perhe-, luokka- ja traumakuvauksena todella hieno. "

" 13.3. NORTHERN VOALAVO - HÄNEN VALINTANSA Nyt Wikipedia-mysteerien teemana oli madagaskarilainen jyrsijä voalavo, joka saa artikkelissa myös lisäliitteen northern. Minulla ei ole mitään käsitystä, onko otuksella jokin suomenkielinen nimi vai ei, mutta Lynne Ramsayn debyyttikokopitkä sai luvan huolehtia jyrsijöiden pyydystämisestä. Ratcatcher kertoo Skotlannin kunnallisessa lähiössä asuvan perheen pojasta, jonka kaveri kuolee varomattomien leikkien tuoksinassa. Nuoren pojan tun"
