ABOUT THE FILM

Three men talk candidly about their experiences of being circumcised later in life. This documentary-like comedy with unexpected twists (like in the scene of men confessing their 'foreskin problems' turning into the scene of an operation in a musical setting!) is a funny and touching examination of life on either side of the foreskin divided.

This is because I feel guilty for putting other people's films down and voting for my own.

nice visuals, interesting storyline but rather mundane overall. Could have benefited from a bit more oomph.

Mr. Wardrop shows his usual talent in this sublime creation exploring a subject so often ignored. An interesting commentary on a society that wants men to be strong and never to show weakness.

A nasty piece of work but I loved it! Were these characters for real?
