Storyline

Nico's father is leading a double life with two women, 17year-old Nico being the oldest child of the illegitimate family. While his father is absent half of the time and only caring about himself during the other half, Nico often has to assume the role of the man in the house, taking care not only of his full siblings, but also his half brother from the official family that his father brings along. He's not allowed into the official family in return though. As the story unfolds, the audience gets to witness his struggle for identity against his father's selfish attempts at parenting.

Two worlds collide
3 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is a real slow burner. A movie that develops very slowly until ... well until it finally makes a statement. But the buildup is nicely shown, with acting so real, it almost feels like a documentary. Especially the young boy, our main character, whom we follow, who struggles to comprehend the meaning of family, without a "real" guidance from a father. He has to grow up fast, or rather he wants to.

It's a tough movie to watch for some I suppose, especially because it might feel that it is not going anywhere (the beginning would be an example for that). But it does pay off, if you have the patience to sit through. The story is not new and many philosophers have said things like that about boys growing up. But the way it plays out, will feel real, instead of a made up movie/story
