Lowie van Oers,
BOYS tells the story of Sieger, a sporty, rather quiet 15-year-old boy who discovers love during the summer holidays. Sieger is training in the new athletics team for the national relay championships and meets the intriguing and unpredictable Marc. The friendship that develops seems nothing out of the ordinary, but Sieger secretly harbours stronger feelings for Marc. He engages in a lonely struggle with himself when it emerges that Marc is also in love with him. With his best friend Stef, Sieger discovers a motocross track outside the village. Events soon take on a momentum of their own as Sieger quickly becomes involved with Jessica. At last, he counts for something in the eyes of his tough older brother Eddy, who is secretly using the track to tear around on a moped. Sieger keeps quiet about this to his father, who often clashes with the rebellious Eddy since their mother's death. Sieger tries to make peace between the two, but his mind is elsewhere, as he finds it increasingly ... Written by
What a cute movie, huh? Very well written script, great performances from all the actors, and extreme care with the production. There not seems made for TV. I found the director creative, especially in the use of the blur to highlight certain scenes. I also loved the way he inserts the incidental music in the film. The kissing scene (which has on the movie poster), where he films without showing the faces of the actors, is a very beautiful thing. On the other hand, it is also a very conventional way, and just why I do not give a 10 for the film. It's a film with classic narrative to the extreme, and that's exactly why appeals to almost everyone. The story is that classic about "coming out": a boy discovers different and fight against yourself, before you accept as is.
