A group of attractive young people with supposedly anti-bourgeois tastes attempt to release their “inner idiot” by pretending to be developmentally disabled in this controversial film.
What begins as an attempt to release inhibitions soon evolves into an act of protest against the restrictions of society. As the group starts “spazzing” in public, they come to believe that being an “idiot” is the purest expression of their abundant creativity. Soon their pantomime merges with their personal lives and blurs their relationships with others as well as themselves.
The premise is offensive enough, but there is also a lot of nudity, culminating in one un-simulated sex scene that had to be pixelated in earlier releases. So that should be interesting to see on the MFA screen with a bunch of strangers, right? Yeah!
