I've seen the short film and liked it, and this one was a pleasant experience as well, although I couldn't help but feel like it was stretched a little bit thin over the course of its 90 minutes. But it's cute!
Sim, o amor é cego e é desse sentimento que o diretor guia sua historia, filmando a interação entre dois meninos de uma forma tão comovente, tão sutilmente erótica, que logo nos esquecemos de tudo para torcer pelo verdadeiro tema: Amar em todos os sentidos!
A beautiful assemble of love, sexcuality and coming of age. Characters are lovable and with a simple yet complex story, Daniel Ribeiro manages to make a strong statement about how love is blind to gender.
It moves like a Belle and Sebastian song.
A "cute" coming of age film. That's about it. The film drags, and a lot has to do with the plot of the short film this is based off, as it seems to have been stretched out to fit the running length of a feature film.
A film that takes pride and joy in capturing the soft and conflicted emotions of a kid searching for love and independence and handles it well with the chemistry that reacts between him, his female pal, and the new boy in school.
