I attended a special screening the other day at the Cans Festival.

Sardines and better half

I saw a wonderful film about interracial relationships starring a can of apricots and a tin of sardines. It was called The Opener.

It followed the usual format of can meets tin, can loses tin and then finally, can gets tin. The canned laughter and canned boos only add to the whole experience.

However there is a rather shocking scene right at the end when their sardicot offspring work out how to open their own cans and run around the screen completely naked. I thought it was rather gratuitous …… and a little messy. Anyway, I can thoroughly recommend it but would suggest you walk out immediately after the marinating scene.


(Would one have sardicots on toast, or with lamb a la Morrocan tagine? Lo,TG Ed.)
