great moving film
27 February 2002 | by (aalter, Belgium) – See all my reviews

this is the story of a young boy who tries to forget the loss of his dad. Not all the actors are very good, but the imagination of Vincent Ball and the performance of Ides Meire makes this film one off the best Flemisch film of the last 10 years. Very nice small film.
