Seen through the eyes of 12-year-old James Gillespie, a sensitive boy haunted by the drowning of a neighbour's son, 'Ratcatcher' paints a bleakly realistic picture of Glasgow family life. Ramsay uses meticulous framing, unusual camera angles and atmospheric images to capture the subtle textures of everyday life, as well as complex inner feelings.
