The film's title is taken from the blues song by Sonny Boy Williamson, "Fattening Frogs for Snakes". Singer Patti Smith apparently brought this song to the director's attention; in the end credits she receives "special thanks" for its use. See more »

So when are you coming back to class?
It's a shame, little Eva. You're the only one I ever picked to make it. You got fucking talent, you know? You got a fucking gift.

Gangster farce about a group of mad theatrics trimmed with deep black humour
Underground director Amos Poe presents this Tarantino-esque gangster movie, which is also a close portrait of a woman trying to break free from her old life. All trimmed with some violence, black humour and loads of quotations from the world of theater and movies. (watched @ the world premier at the Filmfestspiele Berlin)
