review by
Mike Haberfelner

Goot is nothing but a naked fisherman who wants nobody no harm, but then an evil capitalist, Besto, stops by and buys Goot's skin for a mere three Dollars - and later claims Goot's fishing rod, deriving him of his livelyhood. But fortunately, Goot, who now goes by the name of Gutboy, has met a skinless mermaid, Gutgirl, and she grants him a wish - and he wants to marry Sophia, daughter of cop Kug, whom Besto has tricked into helping him. This doesn't go quite as planned though, as Gutgirl thinks Sophia inhabits her skin, and there is some brain switching going on and ... well, ultimately Gutgirl grants Gutboy another wish, to have revenge on Besto and his cronies - and lots of weirdness follows ...


Basically, Gutboy is a triplike piece of weirdness that defies all sorts of logic - and that's exactly why it works so well: The movie really takes one to a place where the laws of nature don't necessarily comply and goes about it with an anything-goes attitude - which is also mirrored in the film's puppets and its music (yes, there are song-and-dance scenes), and its very macabre brand of humour. Now if madness is not your thing, don't even bother, but if you're into some advanced nonsense, then you should definitely watch this.
