Movie Info

In British television writer-director Kevin Allen's feature film debut, the industrial town of Swansea, Wales, is viewed through the post-punk lens of disaffected youth. Lower-class, crude, drug-addled brothers Julian and Jeremy (played by real-life brothers Llyr Evans and Rhys Ifans), steal cars, smoke dope, and terrorize the town on their joy rides. They are thought to be twins but really aren't. Their father Fatty (Hugh Ceredig) is injured while working for corrupt contractor Bryn Cartwright

It is extremely difficult to really care about what is going on because the two main characters are so unpleasant.

A wacky and wild look at life in Wales.

Degenerate might be the perfect way to describe the film, which has no moral center and can't manage to create any sympathetic characters.

He won't pay their Dad compensation, they piss on his daughter, he beats them up, they kill his dog, he kills their family, they kill him. Bleak, depressing film with no likeable characters and constant swearing. It also put me off ever going to Swansea in my life ever.
