In thrilling children’s film, Paul with his protruding ears and other boys and girls take up arms against a pres­i­dent who wants to banish all ugli­ness from the Netherlands.
Familiar themes pack­aged in an absur­dist approach. Under pres­i­dent Isimo, the Nether­lands must be made clean and fresh. All ugly chil­dren are deported, but some escape and launch an uprising. Adapted from Koos Mein­derts’ children’s book.
