Young actor plays an emotionally vulnerable and sweet character, who is crossed up with a more brash character in his class, who he wishes to confess his feelings to.
The film follows nostalgically cliché, sincere sensitivities in adolescent romance - uncertainty, tensions, hope, and innocence. Yet at other times, things are more realistic! Jeremie finds out things don't always go as he planned. The kind of script everyone has experienced.
Overall a touching, tasteful film, both in it's filming and feeling - a pleasant antidote to some of the romance flicks out there. I do feel the film could have been expanded, but perhaps if that was the case things could have been less well tuned and edited. Perhaps he could have fallen in love for a while. But perhaps not.
