Transitional period happens to everybody, 8 May 2009
Author: ichocolat from

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Follow a journey of two young boys, stepping into adulthood, with confusion and uncertain as to what will happen or what will they do with their lives.

They rented an apartment to stay (even though it is obvious to everyone that the place they are staying in is actually a garage) and started living there.

While one prefer to live in the new place, the other one pines for home, to be able to see his family, and to be able to live like he did before moving to the new place.

This film is rather bland, with few jokes, and no climax or twists to make people enjoy this film. The fact that this film was available in DVDs two years back, but has ye to get any comments here, proves it.

However, if you are the type of people who enjoys watching films dealing with facts of life, of human nature, of people in general, than this is the right film for you.
