Runtime: 40 min.
Director: John Hellberg
Mousse is a medium length droll and blackly comic tale of an “honest criminal” and police ineptitude. Through the enigmatic but engaging lead character Mousse, we are invited to empathies with his position of seeming desperation that leads him to a petty criminal act. In the face of his existential motivations, we see the real pettiness of contemporary society, where small time gambling and scrambling for small financial rewards battle for supremacy against bigger, ethical issues; where the inanities of a police force that represent the state and authority demonstrate the ridiculous nature of order and control.
Follow the excitement, hilarity, and chaos as “The Golden Scallop” tracks these teams from selection till the glory of victory or the agony of defeat.
