Teenagers on holiday.
9 March 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Tedious NFB television half hour from the cinema verité era spearheaded by the documentaries of Jean Rouch, for whom Brault worked as a cameraman.

The girl tasting falling snow recalls, with voice over, the holiday she spent babysitting teen age boys and girls at the lake.

OK B&W camera-work, plausible obser4ved performances

  • unequal to it's self appointed task of documenting time, place and


attitudes.

This one is a poor man's STAND BY ME.

What more is there to say.
