A dark and unique portrait of Glasgow in the 1970s. When a young boy drowns in a canal, the friend who he was with - James - blames himself. But for a while at least, life goes on for James as usual - making the best of things in the council flat he shares with his parents and two sisters, and a friendship with an older girl who is a target of abuse for the local kids. Ratcatcher is a film where mood and visual images are as important as plot, and the results will stay in the mind long after other films have faded.
