Movie Info

The angst suffered by low-income adolescents living in a tiny country town where fun comes from marching in the town band and holding contests to see whose pet finch can chirp the loudest every Sunday afternoon provides the basis for this raw, slow-paced drama.

Nothing happens.

Only the most patient art-house audiences will appreciate Dumont's occasional cinematic grace which transcends the grim proceedings.
