Disappointing
13 January 2004 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Dagmar Hirtz's "Moondance" isn't the refreshing film about the tests of brotherhood that it should have been. It has the innocent tone of children's literature, but this becomes a problem when serious questions arise.

The story follows brothers Dominic and Patrick. There is a considerable age difference between them. Their parents are vacant, and Dominic takes care of his younger brother- but makes sure they always have a good time in the process. There are amusing scenes following their adventures (don't miss the living-room shootout), and I loved that the perpetual cycle of pleasure rebelliously boxes out education and order.

Eventually, Patrick is forced to be tutored by a beautiful young woman named Anya. The two brothers fall in love with her for their own reasons, and their strong bond becomes frail as she learns she can only love Dominic.

Heavier subject matter is brought up with her arrival, and the problems arise in this section of the film. It is hard to be compelled by the dilemmas thrown at the boys when the atmosphere in the film is so kid-friendly. Also, there is a very gratuitous sex scene that throws "Moondance"s innocent feel completely off, tarnishing the film completely.

There is of course the Van Morrison soundtrack that many will be attracted to. Listen to his CDs, or download his music, but do not rent "Moondance"!
