Beautiful storytelling
3 May 2005 | by (Tel Aviv, Israel) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie about two Weeks ago and I still find myself thinking about it(always a sign that the movie is good...). The movie is called "Shik" which was translated to English as "The suit", a more correct translation probably would have been "Style". The movie is shot in a wonderful scenery, the location is a city with two river banks, one where the population is poor and barely goes by, and the other one populated by rich people, where there are expensive hotels and restaurants and where there is a store with a very stylish new suit in it's window. the heroes in the movie are 3 teenage boys from the poor side of the river, each with his own hardships and pains, they decide to buy the suit they see in the store. The suit is merely an object which helps them to change their life styles, to do things they would only dream about without it. The director does an excellent job in creating the strong contradiction between the wonderful views and the misery of the boys lives. for every good thing that happens to either of the boys there is also a bad one, the outlook of the movie is very pessimistic...just the very thing that makes it a great drama.
