Breakfast on Pluto - We are children of the revolution

Wednesday, August 2. 2006

Initially I was up for some useless action movie – to get some distraction. But school holidays wrecked my plans.. There wasn’t a single acceptable seat. So I decided that an alternative movie might also be a good choice. Luckily having the Lichtspiel and the Odeon there is plenty of choice for such movies in Bamberg. So it didn’t take too long to find a suitable movie for paule and me:

Breakfast on Pluto follows the exploits of Patrick "Kitten" Braden, an endearing but deceptively tough young man. Abandoned as a baby in his small Irish hometown, and aware from a very early age that he is different, Patrick survives a harsh environment with the aid of his wit and charm, plus a sweet refusal to let anyone or anything change who he is.

I like the above description also it is only a description of the movie on a meta level. The movie itself has far more facettes that could be described here. It shows a young man going HIS way. the movie illustrates this with great pictures and a lovely soundtrack.

(Jay's rating: 4,5/5)
