Synopsis

William Eady, Mandy Mathews, Tommy Flanagan.
A hit at Cannes 1999 and winner of awards at Edinburgh and London Film festivals.
Set on a Glasgow council estate during the 70's dustmen's strike, Ratcatcher follows the story of James, a young boy who escapes his cruel childhood by visiting a new greenbelt housing development. Already renowned for her Cannes-winning short films, Ramsay's impressionistic approach to narrative yields riches galore. Her bold visual sense, droll wit and remarkably tender but unsentimental take on the characters makes for a distinctly poetic brand of film making. A fabulous and exotic portrait of childhood
