Plot Outline:

This movie is one of my all time favourites. You know the guy you see in the grubbiest bars, pubs, and dives? The one that reeks like booze, sweat and smoke?

That is who this movie is about. You must see this movie and i guarantee that when it's done, you'll be disapointed that there isn't more.

Hier befinden wir uns also in einer heruntergekommenen Bar. Dieselben Trinker nehmen täglich ihre Plätze ein und verharren. Niemand scheint sich für den Anderen zu interessieren und doch weiss jeder alles über jeden. Stammgast ist auch Henry (Mickey Rourke), ...
