Damian (W.G.White) is, how shall I put it, a little different from other boys his age, basically because he is ... half-bear. That doesn't stop his black leather-clad mother from loving him though. But Damian wants more than just her mother's love and the affection (?) of his weird German reladives including his Nazi gramps (David Robinson), a lampshade maker who spends most of the time in the basement - making lanpshades and constantly mumbling what could be Nazi slogans. What Damian wants are friends, actually, and to this end he even persuades his mother to let him go to school with other kids his age ... however, in school his quite unique appearance soon gets him into troubles.

Before long, Damian's only real friend turns out to be Preston (Chuck Fusca), the redneck neighbours' son ... but then Damian steps on the ingrown toenail of Preston's crazy cousin who thinks the ingrown toenail is her twin sister and Damian has now killed her - and Damian, always gullible, suddenly finds himself on the run.

Eventually he finds work at a strip club, but his very moderate tap dancing skills don't go too well with the patrons who expect female strippers, then he is kidnapped by a trio of weirdos in animal costumes, before finally mama manages to track him down and save him from his kidnappers' clutches - and she once again takes him in her loving care ...

 

When watching Mama and Damian, just don't expect the usual - the fillm tells a highly original and completely bizarre story in such an engaging way that it compeltely obscures its amateur origins and its shoestring budget, which is also helped by a carefully chosen cast playing rather unique characters. However, a bizarre plot and a good cast don't automatically make a good movie, and to be honest, the film is a little weak in the narrative department. What totally saves Mama and Damian though is that the film has got lots of heart without ever getting cheesy. The film shows a genuine love for its freaky characters (even the not so likeable ones) and treats them with respect even in the most unlikely of situations - and this in itself makes the film rather unique.

If you like your films unusual and bizarre, this one's no doubt for you, and you can order it directly from http://www.trinkafivefilms.com.

... and a second opinion by Dale Pierce ...

 

This is one weird vehicle produced, directed by and starring Kathi Lehmer of  Delaware, USA. It does not look like the kind of thing one would expect to come out of the area, her state being a tiny world within itself, full of patriotic, God-fearing citizens and Republican Goerge Bush lovers. Well, not everyone is a religious freak or a Republican, I suppose, in that neck of the woods. Some weird people surface now and again. Its eems like they all came up to the top to work on Mama & Damien. The fact Kathi moved there from New York might explain it better.

 

In any case, this is the strange tale of a mutant bear-boy (W.G.White). You read it right, a bear-boy. How this thing/human came into being is never fully explained. Cross breeding by a kinky mother (Kathi Lehmer) who dresses in leather and doesn't seem quite right in the head? The result of experiments from a  Nazi grandfather (David Robinson), hiding in the basement? An act of God? Who knows.

 

All the info may be found at http://www.trinkafivefilms.com for data.

 

In short, the bear-boy runs away from home, falls in with a crowd of strippers and ends up reunited with his family in the end. Really oddball stuff, like somehting John Waters might have cranked out.

 

The interesting thing about this movie and perhaps social message is the whole cast is a cast of weirdos. The thign is, each of them consider everyone else to be freakish, while they fail to notice their own absurdities. Typical of life, that one!
