Cut Snake

Synopsis: Set in Melbourne in the mid-1970s, Cut Snake tells the story of Sparra Farrell (Alex Russell), an ex-convict who is trying to make a new life for himself in a new city. He has found honest work and even becomes engaged but the prospect of this new life is challenged when his foreboding and charismatic cell mate Pommie (Sullivan Stapleton) tracks him down upon his own release. Sparra finds himself enigmatically drawn back toward a world and a man that he was certain he had wanted to leave behind.

What do you want?

It's me.

Mervs' mate.

He's not here.

Can I come in anyway?

I've got something for you.

You're prettier than

he let on, missus.

Yeah?

I haven't been well.

Aw, that's a shame.

Here.

Let me do that for you.

Why don't you go and grab

us a couple of glasses?

Hm?

What?

I'm not going to nick anything.

The boy said he'd be around.

You haven't heard

from him, have you'?

No.

Never one for

keeping up, that one.

Just like his dad and granddad.

All the men in this family.

Bloody useless!

What are you doing?

What?

Here.

Why don't we go and

have those outside, eh?

It's a miracle day.

So Mervs, did you talk to Kev?

Yeah.

He said he's already got

another apprentice on, so...

Uh huh.

He said maybe give him a call

back at the end of the year.

Well, then why

don't I call him'?

Thanks, Mister McGrath.

Hey, young people have a hard

enough time getting ahead.

And if I can help you,

or Paula out, I will.

It's all lies.

I was a perfect child.

Marriage is about dependability.

Knowing you can rely on

it when you need it most.

To have constancy,

trust in another person,

to truly know that

person, well, that to me,

is the mark of true love.

So to my darling wife,

Thea, happy 30 dependable,

reliable years, love.

30 years!

Cheers!

I'm dying of jealously here.

Where did you get him again?

One, two- ...

When he fell from the sky.

Three, four!

All right, Nicolas is it!

Doesn't have

a mate, does he?

So when's that plumber coming?

It's not too early, is it?

I cancelled until pay day.

But mom and dad said...

I don't want to take any

more money from your parents.

We'll be all right

for a couple of days.

OK, Mister stand

on his own two feet.

Come and get me.

So lucky.

Yeah.

I'll f*cking say.

Wait a minute.

Why?

Hey!

Wait!

Are we really going to do this?

Do you still want to?

You'll be the oldest

apprentice in history, mate.

Little kids will

throw stones at you.

I'll still be looking

younger than you, mate.

And how could you leave

this place, anyway?

Lords.

Old fashioned charm.

Just watch me, mate.

Farrell, visitor!

What's she look like?

Knock out.

F*ck me!

Hi!

Hiya!

All right, easy!

Easy!

Easy!

Look at you!

You've gone all skinny!

What about you?

What's happened to your lip?

You hiding from somebody?

Ah.

Could ask the same

about you, mate.

Farrell?

Yeah?

Have you fixed that fence yet?

Oh, no.

We're going to finish it

off tomorrow morning, boss.

Well, you've

said your hellos.

Come on, let's go!

Sorry, mate.

I'm on strike two with

this prick already, so...

Yeah, right.

Maybe a drink later then?

Yeah.

Well, don't

sound too thrilled, mate.

No, no.

I am.

It's... thinking the

Rolls down on the corner,

I want to meet you there.

All right.

Oi!

Hey.

Hi.

Don't get pissed

off on me again.

Looks like

everything's closing up.

We'll just have to

take me to your joint.

Oh, man, I've... I've...

You haven't tied it up, eh?

If I'd known.

Eh?

I found out where you worked

in about 10 minutes flat,

didn't I?

So be nice.

Show me this little

hideout of yours.

What are you up to, eh?

Mervin Farrell doesn't

make rooms for a living.

It's just temporary.

I'm going into an

apprenticeship.

Cabinet making.

Bullshit.

Don't you worry, I'll get

your little secret out of you.

So this your hideout, eh?

No way.

Yours?

F*ck me.

Your own house.

Christ!

You've even got veggies!

Just a bit of silver beet.

Silver beet.

Zucchini.

Tomatoes.

Thyme.

Didn't know if it

would work, but-

It's magic.

F*cking magic.

Very nice.
