Storyline

Josh is an ordinary teen living in an ordinary suburb, wedged between the high school, the mine and the skate park. One morning, he finds his friend Thomas's dead body. Next, he discovers that three more friends also killed themselves, leaving him out of their pact. As the sole survivor, Josh becomes more and more detached from the world around him. Only Mia, his best friend's girl, can reach him. With more questions than answers, Josh's is the story of a survivor. It is a modern portrait of today's teens: invincible yet fragile, clear-thinking yet confused, idealistic yet jaded. Written by Anonymous

Weakly developed
9 February 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I went to see that film because suicide is a taboo subject and must be dealt with. The film has the merit to have tried. I enjoyed the beginning but I started to get bored by many clichés and the chaotic photography. It brings the viewer nowhere and I expected to see a rebirth of life after death, but the pain lived by the survivors, gets channeled in a teenage-type love story instead of bringing us closer to the parents' drama. The film lies on the main character's performance, quite well interpreted, and his sad and heavy silence is very realistic. But the other actors are empty and the deep pain they should be going through is unfortunately too shallow and thus not conveyed. Even the character Mia, the strong survivor could not lift the movie. I do not know if it is the actors or rather the scenario or the overall tone that does not allow the movie to lift the viewers higher and touch us where it should have. We should have felt that life worth to try. But that was not felt.
