A very simple yet touching film
26 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

The main strength of this film is it's simplicity. Without being too convoluted, the film has an interesting and entrapping story. Despite the simplicity of the actual narrative, the movie is surprisingly deep and stratified, as proved by the way the story is written to analogously follow the five protagonists , one of many themes during the movies being how all boys that age go through very similar situations and feelings. The story itself is quite original, and feels, to the viewer, very realistic. The feelings each character has really hit home, and even though some situations seem a tad far-fetched, it all fits into the atmosphere of teenage anxiety and drama, and awkward feeling of not knowing how to react to some situations.

This is a movie that when you see it, you feel the complexity, you don't have to re-watch it five times to finally catch all the clues to understand whats going on. This simplicity is very refreshing allowing the viewer to simply absorb and enjoy the core of the movie.

Basically, this movie is an easy watch that brings the viewer back to the beginning of the teenage years by creating a illusion of simplicity and awkwardness.
