An underrated gem
20 February 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I think this is a great movie. The negative reviews here are way too harsh. I also think they don't understand what the movie is trying to do. It is not trying to be a realistic film. It is a film about a boy who is trapped in a boring life, dreaming of a way to escape. I also really like the way the film keeps shifting tone. It starts like a bored teenager film, then shifts into black comedy, then gets a lot more serious as the story unfolds. I think the shifts in tone are very well handled and give the film an original feel. A highlight of the film is the way it captures the urban landscape of a part of Melbourne that is little seen. Great cinematography and some of the scenes are very skilfully directed. A couple of the minor actors' performances are a bit uneven but the two leads are terrific. Totally recommended if you are interested in something a bit different.
