  • kartina obskura's rating of the film Boy

    a barefoot childhood, a smell of a cooked corn, torn knees, el sur and all the miracles, branko copic and the marshmallow color garden, danilo kis and the chestnut street. a barefoot childhood, and wheat fields are shining on the evening sun and the snow doesn´t taste as good as you thought and no one ever found the treasure you hid in the ground. a barefoot childhood,a tailed star.
