The plot of 'Dear Wendy' revolves around Dick Dandelion, a loner living in a small American mining town in which everyone's life and livelihood seems to be totally centred around the local mine. Looking for a gift for someone he doesn't really like he buys a toy gun, which he soon discovers isn't a toy at all, it's real and Dick decides to keep it for himself.
Dick then falls in love with his gun, names it 'Wendy', and forms a gang named 'The Dandies', which is comprised of other gun lovers, all of which are pacifists who love to study and appreciate guns, though are not interested in their use as actual weapons and are honour bound as gang members never to use their guns to commit violent acts against others. As the story progresses 'The Dandies' soon realise that some of the rules of the group have to be broken.
Written by Lars Von Trier, 'Dear Wendy' is a film presented in a very unique and quirky way. The young cast is great and not typical of the usual teenage casting of good looks and white teeth, and Jamie Bell is proving to be an exceptional young actor. If you like quirky films then this is definitely worth a look.

This movie is one which is best enjoyed without reading about its plot first. Even the title has a twist which if its revealed spoils the entire experience somewhat. Not a movie to buy unless you're a completist of the director's work but definitely one to rent blind and watch with a friend. From a banal ordinairy beginning to a ... ending of sorts. A work of art and a joy to watch.

I'm not going to bore you by listing off a ream of names saying who directs and produces this cult classic, but I heartily recommend this film. It's got a bit of heart, enough original action to keep you entertained without dragging on for too long and a pretty bizarre, yet interesting storyline. One of Jamie Bell's (okay, I will say one name) most believable roles, you'll have a whole lot of fun watching this movie, and even though it's not very rewatchable, it's still a great film that really hasn't gotten enough appreciation for its originality, or for its brilliant soundtrack.

Some films are more than the sum of their parts, some films are considerably less than the sum of their parts. Dear Wendy however, is a film that is precisely the sum of its parts, nothing more and nothing less.

The film focuses on a simple and very deceptive love affair between a social misfit Dicky (played by Billy Elliot's Jamie Bell), and Wendy of the title. However, Wendy is not the girl of his dreams, she is in fact the gun of his dreams. Dicky lives in a small American town called Electric Park, and is determined not to follow in his fathers footsteps and end up working down the local mine. After securing a job at a local store, Dicky comes across what he thinks is a toy gun in a local store, run by the equally awkward Susan (Alison Pill), and buys the gun as a present for someone he doesn't really like, but winds up giving them something else instead, and keeps the gun. It is only when fellow convenience store worker Stevie (Mark Webber) catches sight of the gun that he identifies and reveals to Dicky that it is a working gun, and he to possesses a gun. The two of them strike up an unlikely friendship, and soon establish a club for their fellow misfits Susan, and two brothers Freddie (Michael Angarano) and Huey (Chris Owen). Calling themselves the Dandies, all of them obtain guns of one sort or another, and begin practising with them, establishing rules, and becoming a tight knit family. It is only when local petty criminal Sebastian (Danso Gordon) joins the group that things begin to come apart.

From this basic premise director Thomas Vinterburg and writer Lars Von Trier have established as interesting and absorbing a film as you are ever likely to see.

Pacifist geeks get guns, feel better for it, but are ultimately corrupted by their weapons’ ‘true nature’. Or should that be their own true nature. Either way Dear Wendy makes for an intelligent exploration of social exclusion and the attractiveness of cults, while a superb ’60s soundtrack proves its creators’ Dogme days are long gone.
