It's like watching Takashi Miike's "Audition", substituting pain with PETA.
With a review like this I'll have to go and track it down.

You're a stronger man than I. Just reading the review made my brain hurt--and not in a good way.

I was reading this review on break at work and had to resist the urge to burst out laughing. A bizarre tale that has piqued my interest.

Dammit, you beat me to it! And here I was, ready to copy/paste that exact same line and say pretty much the exact same thing. That could have been the entire review and it would have worked for me.

In a massive coincidence, I stumbled upon this title in the ANN Encyclopedia merely two or three days ago while searching for another film starring a mythical creature named Coo. I didn't think much of it at the time (although seeing Julian Lennon as the theme song composer made me do a brief double-take), but after reading this hilarious review, I'm determined to check it out.

The military happens to be the French, .... No, these are simply Very Bad Men. So bad, in fact, that they show absolutely no remorse when they try to MURDER THE KID with machine gun fire, miss, and end up shooting his beloved dolphin to pieces.


Given that the French did kill a Greenpeace activist in 1985 when they planted bombs on the Rainbow Warrior the story is not that much of an exaggeration.

It's a bit of an exaggeration to mow down an unarmed kid with a hail of machinegun fire and have an entire military diversion to catch a baby animal, I think.

Don't get me wrong, French people are Evil. Especially French Canadians. Twisted Evil

Um. I seriously have to hope that is sarcasm. :/

From this review, this movie actually sounds very good to me Anime hyper I want to see it now.
(Maybe its just because I have a thing for sea creatures)

Subtle isn't a key word here then. It does sound interesting, if only for the sheer wackiness however. Surprised

Killer dophins? Most likely killed dolphins.

I hadn't thought of the Greenpeace incident but it does raise some interesting context considering the hush hush atmosphere. I doubt the French would not show some remorse over killing children, but propaganda is hardly unbiased.
