Final Cut

Australia, 1996 (MIFF 1997, Fiction)

Director: Justin Case

Final Cut tells the story of a pet axolotyl held hostage because his owner Rodney fails to return his neighbour's lawn mower. Through sloppy cutting and pasting, the ransom note transforms into a love letter which woos Rodney's love-hungry wife. Featured in this year's 50th Cannes Film Festival, it was described by Roger Corman as "a great fun little movie".
