I pondered the idea of doing a full review of this movie instead of a quick one like I usually do. Why? Because it made my heart beat stronger as I watched it last night and I’d like to give it a little push; it really deserves it. It’s a small budget movie that went almost straight to DVD; some festivals, some prizes but no international release. I’m not even sure the movie will be available on DVD in other countries someday. And that’s sad. Treacle Jr. is not meant to be a blockbuster but it’s these little gems that make cinema so interesting and surprising.
