Three adolescent friends decide that they need a nice, expensive suit for certain occasions. They succeed in purchasing it and every time when one of the friends wears it, he changes from a boy into a man. All three friends have their typical family problems; they all have divorced parents and mothers with some problems and fathers that don't bother about their sons. Although these family relations seem to be strange, in this movie they seem to be very normal in this society at the Black sea. The storyline is sparkling and original, the characters are superb, the landscape is a feast, the acting could be better, the speed is as youthful as the three main characters.
In a whole, a movie very worthwhile to enjoy, it's the kind of movie that will show you a culture that may seem to be very far away but is quite identical to the one you are living in.
