Review

Zak and Seth are siblings. They are sent to a country cottage during summer vacation. When they first met Dany, a country boy, they hit it off with each other straight away. Dany’s older brother, Angel is a seedy local villain who acts violently against Dany habitually. The brothers recognized Angel as their common enemy at a glance. The money they have gotten is running out but their mother still doesn’t show up. They make up their mind to rent a spare room to a drug dealer because they cannot wait for their mother any longer. The idea sounds quite reasonable but the things don’t go easily as they have hoped. The pawn of the drug dealer is, of all men, Angel. This film tells a childhood friendship between boys who are going through difficulties together. The boys are abandoned under the sky with no roof. And they embrace each other as if they are sharing their protective instincts. The image that three boys are floating gently along the river reminds the novel by Mark Twain. Also, we can recall Mark Twain’s when they are wandering against the violence and danger in the world of adults armed with warmth for each other. At the moment when their reticent and unconditional friendship reaches the peak in the film, we may miss yet again what we have lost in the city. But it is ok. The boys are comforted by motherhood crossed their life for a moment and the warmth of wind, and the audiences can be solaced by the music. The folk music with the soothing voice fills up our heart with fondness and pitifulness.
