Based on a true story dating back to 1985 when two Polish boys, a teenager and his little brother, escaped from communist Poland all the way to Sweden, hidden under a truck. In the movie, their destination has been changed to Denmark.
This is a short, quintessential battle-of-the-generations film. Both sides of the "gap" were realistically portrayed and the situation marginally real at least in its inception if not in its outcome. The boys and girls used their real accents (amateurs??) but the dialogue was not difficult to decipher for anyone unfamiliar with native British dialects. The consequences of thoughtless actions (the difference between "child-like" and "childish") were nicely portrayed but I'm not sure I like the ending. See for yourself if you can find it. Worth a watch. If I'd been casting/directing this film I would've had more interaction between the two groups and perhaps more focus on the innocence of the younger boys.
