About the film: 

A bitingly funny coming-of-age story of a teenage cartoonist who rejects the comforts of his suburban life in a misguided quest for soul. The film premiered in the Director’s Fortnight section of the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, where it received a three-minute standing ovation.

“A genuinely bizarre, startling, freewheelingly lo-fi and funny indie picture with the refreshing bad-taste impact of Todd Solondz or Robert Crumb.”

—Peter Bradshaw, the Guardian (UK)
