Feature film

In his fickle teenage world, artistic and sexually frustrated outsider Oscar Madly dreams himself away from his terminally ill hometown and life with emotionally unstable father. His hamster, voiced by Isabella Rossellini, talks to him when his anxiety takes a physical form. The point of no return in more madness occurs for Oscar when he falls in love with a mysterious and exciting guy at work, and he decides to finally figure out the real world around him. Warped, grotesque humour and horror, mixed with strong realism in an emotional thriller of the wildest kind!

This film contains explicit violence.
