DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
AGAINST the backdrop of the fall of the Berlin Wall (and inspirational footage of David Hasselhoff), Martin, with the imaginary help of his friend Sean who exists only in his head, decides to bring down the wall in his parents’ backyard. It’s really because he acci- dentally went to school wearing make-up, not because of a unified Germany. His parents don’t notice because they’ve got their own problems. His father, a signwriter, is having a time of it explaining to Tony who owns the bed shop that BEDS doesn’t need an apostrophe. And his mother is training to become the local Weight Wishers instructor.
