| Toothless "Shark" swims in a shallow, lukewarm water
With a tighter script this film might have worked better as a theater play, since it takes place inside a ground floor apartment or on a street level in front of the building. The film presents a man's slide into mental illness, but the slide is not terribly disturbing or particularly frightening. Neither do we learn very much about him, there is some allusion to his mother and his education, but that's it. Other people come and go , not that we get to know them or what makes them tick. His presence on the street appears not to frighten anybody, and he has no hygiene problems (even his sandal clad feet and toenails are clean !) despite messing around with garbage cans. Anyone with even a passing acquaintance with severely mentally ill may find this rather likable fellow not particularly believable.There are some interesting animation sequences though.
