Full Plot

The UK is about to switch its currency from Pounds to Euros, giving a gang a chance to rob the poorly-secured train loaded with money on its way to incineration. But, during the robbery, one of the big bags falls literally from the sky on Damian's playhouse, a 7-year old given to talking to saints. The boy then starts seeing what the world and the people around him are made of. Ethics, being human and the soul all come to the forefront in this film. Reuben Cogo Plot not found

Quotes

[first lines] Damian Cunningham: [voiceover] The French have said au revoir to the franc, the Germans have said auf wiedersehen to the mark, and the Portuguese have said... whatever to their thing. Damian Cunningham: God doesn't rob banks! Damian Cunningham: God doesn't rob banks, all right? God does not rob banks. Anthony: What did you bring a thousand pounds to school for? Can't you see that's suspicious? Damian Cunningham: It's not suspicious, it's unusual. Headteacher: Would you like to tell us why you did it Anthony? Anthony: [pause] Our mum's dead! [crying] Damian Cunningham: I thought it was from God... who else would have that kind of money? Anthony: [to Damian] If you tell the government they will take forty percent of it. FORTY PERCENT! Do you know how much that is? [Damian shakes his head] That's nearly ALL of it. Dorothy: What? Damian Cunningham: I need a wee. Dorothy: Tell her that. Can he use your loo? Cashier 2: I'm not sure. Dorothy: The poor kid's been in here half an hour. You must have a loo. What do you do when you need to go? [the Ugandan martyr motions to a red line across his neck] Gonzaga: I was beheaded. [after realizing the trouble that Damian's "gift" has caused] Anthony: [to Damian] You're a loony, and you ought to be *locked up!* Anthony: You do realise, you just kissed goodbye to the money. Ronnie: Come on, let's get cracking. Anthony: She's going to run off with it, you must know that? Ronnie: Come on! How can she, she's got Damian? Anthony: She'll kidnap him, hold him to ransom for the rest of the money. Ronnie: No, Anthony, that's what *you'd* do.

Trivia

- The book that Damien reads and references throughout the film is called "Six O'Clock Saints". Popular in the UK in the 1950s, it is surprising that any parent would give a copy to their child, as the screenwriter 'Frank Cottrell Boyce' (qv) points out at 03:08 in the DVD commentary, since it contains all the gruesome stories that Damien tells in class, plus many more. Its inclusion is a sort of homage to Martin Scorsese, who, according to Boyce, has cited it in interviews as one of his favorite books growing up and that it gave him a wider understanding of the human experience than had been revealed to him as a child. In Roger Ebert's 3/18/2005 review of the film, Ebert mentions that Boyce "got the inspiration for the screenplay from an interview in which Martin Scorsese said he was reading the lives of the saints."

- 'Danny Boyle' (qv) and 'Frank Cottrell Boyce' (qv) mention at 27:17 in the DVD commentary, that one of the actors who play the martyrs of Uganda claimed to be a descendant of the real martyrs of Uganda of 1881.

- Many of the cutting and shot compositions in the train robbery sequence are intentionally referential to moments in _Night Mail (1936)_ (qv) and _The
