A brothers story of growth and family relationship.
26 November 2009 | by (ireland) – See all my reviews

This peculiar little subtitled tale presents an early performance by a now increasingly popular Irish actor, Robert Sheehan (born 1988).It takes us on a young life journey to mid teens and the relationship between two brothers. The ending will come as a surprise! The acting throughout is good and Mr. Sheehan gives his usual 'animated' facial reactions to the various situations that develop. Toned down by the drama is his usually more exuberant voice which has the common actors error of sounding like someone reciting memorized lines rather than a 'natural' flow. On the production side the modern tendency to under-light a scene is mostly absent. This little short story film could be expanded to a feature given the amount of drama in it.
