In the world we live in movies are not often original,it seem now that everything had been done ,so, when I found films like this one , it really made me happy. The story is about a boy who ,one morning, find his mother dead in bed...with a premise like that you guys are probably thinking that this film is a big heavy drama,right? Well no,its actually a very sweet film with a lot of comedic moments. After his friends find out about the death of their friends mother , they decide to all come together to help the boy hide the death from the adults because he knows well that he will be put into a home. Thats were the film turn into one of the most beautiful homage to friendship I have seen on film. The kids (none of them were actors) were so natural that at time I forgot that was a film i was looking at.They acted like real kids they were not super smart yet they organized a funeral (you gotta see the movie alone for that) Of course what has to happen,happen in the end for the sake of realism but even with the bittersweet ending , I give this film a 8 out of 10 , for having the balls to tackle such a serious subject in such a unconventional manner. In an interesting side note this film was originally made for television.....if only TV film could be all of that quality.
