Eine Geschichte über ein Coming out? Eine über Jung sein? Eine über die Eltern-Kinder Beziehung? Dazu noch Erzählstränge in Hülle und Fülle, die alle vom Regisseure kaum tragend gemacht wurden. Die Jugendlichen sind süß, aber man vergisst sie wohl sofort wieder. Ein im Grunde langweiliger Film mit dem Anspruch, Jugendliche verstehen zu wollen. Dieses Unterfangen ging ziemlich in die Hosen, wie so oft in diesem Genre.
I liked that his movie had several plots running in parallel. We were introduced to the protagonist early with a big hint about his sexuality, but left to work it out ourselves throughout the course of the film. It did a great job of depicting teenage life in fast lane - as we were introduced to the characters and their relationship with the broader more senior world. Nonetheless this movie was largely authentic.
