Very good short that deals with boyhood, love and that clash that happens when children have to learn how to navigate in an adult world, growing up. Or just a very clever device that lets us look at a relationship, from a naive, skeptical, saboteur point of view. Either way, it's a beautiful piece of cinema.

It is a simple nice exercise, but it describes Truffaut's Nouvelle Vague form beautifully. It is also open to a slow analysis. 18 minutes of what can easily be the beginning of your love affair with french cinema. At least, that's what I think he was wishing any of us could one day say.
El final de "Les mistons" es lo mejor de esta fábula. La niñez como espacio que contempla, madura con precocidad, a través de lo erótico (fantasía) o la muerte (lo real). La inocencia, así como la crueldad infantil, son puras, y se esfuman con facilidad.
