29th Galway Film Fleadh 11th – 16th July 2017
“A raucously funny film about refusing to grow up.”
When elderly parents don’t behave according to their children’s expectations, the latter just can’t cope. They have enough trouble trying to keep their own kids in check, and now the old codgers are rattling their cages as well.
During their lives, Fons (70), Lull (82), Nuckes (65) and Jängi (84) have taken pride in not letting themselves be bossed around. Having reached a certain age, they have no intention of putting up with it now. Together, the four men consider planning their futures without retirement homes. Nuckes, the leading force of the group and an old ’68 protester, knows how to organise ‘resistance’, but all of this is easier said than done!
