I swear the plot is just like this: Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, far removed from any known sailing route. When the film starts, he is seriously thinking of hanging himself. But then he discovers a cadaver floating near the shore. He tries to bring it back to life, but the body responds to his kindness by releasing extraordinary, stinky farts. We had best not mention how this cadaver, interpreted by the one who was once Harry Potter, becomes the best friend and best tool for survival of the man who almost committed suicide. Because then we would have to tell you how, thanks to his monumental erections, the dead man and the living one reach solid ground and civilisation thanks to a stroke of luck. I swear, it won the Award for Best Director at Sundance.
