review by
Mike Haberfelner

Larry's (Velton Lishke) a bit on the weird side - especially his weird way of walking and his habit of picking up trash from the street and carrying it around in a bag makes him suspicious to his neighbours. But that said, he's a guy who couldn't hurt a fly and tries to just ignore the insults thrown at him regularly. One day he finds a girl's shoe lying on the pavement, and as with all things he finds, he just puts it in his bag. What he doesn't know is that the shoe belongs to a local girl (Molly Schofield) who has virtually just gone missing. And when her parents (Jack Kenna, Rebecca Lindley) find her shoe on Larry, they put two and two together, come to the wrong conclusions, and they and a couple of friends drag Larry to their house to beat him to a pulp ...

 

A very nice little film that seems very straight forward with its narration at first to then throw in a couple of surprise twists when one least expects them to keep one interested throughout - but that said, the main reason that the film works quite as well as it does is certainly its Velton Lishke's portrayal of Larry, which doesn't only get the weirdness of the character right but also shows his multi-layered persona to really get the audience to identify with the bloke despite him being "different".

And all of this makes this one a pretty cool movie!
