Critics reviews

Driven by a wonderful lead performance by young Gabriel del Castillo Mullally, the film remains true to a specific social environment, and its events, however large in the mind of its protagonist, are no more than ripples on the surface of its undemonstrative observational style. It’s a sign of Lewis and Thomas’s subtle unconventionality that the boy’s turbulent emotions are finally and movingly calmed by a character who had been discredited by earlier events.
