Storyline

Five youngsters have grown to be men in Falkenberg. This is the story of their last summer together in the little west coast town. They are all different, with different views upon life and the future. Life is over, yet just to start. The adulthood is about to start, but are they ready? Not all of them, and not all will reach there either. A meditation about life, poetic, balanced, which will remind most of their own childhood and coming of age, and the melancholy of life changes, when you know there's no turning back. A last farewell to a hometown, the little town by the sea. Written by OJT

Can you feel what is left unspoken?
29 September 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

As is said in another comment you can not be told whether you will like this film or not. You need to have something in your past or present that helps you enter this group and understand or feel the things that are left unspoken... and that is much. But if you have that, this film is rewarding, tragic, beautiful and painful. Very good!

The minimal form of the film is perfect for the on the surface minimal story. But as any minimal art the content is there, but you will need to do at least half of the work of finding it. I enjoy that kind of film, and since I am able to relate to the story a great deal, this film was perfect for me!
