Storyline

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 Pupkin Film

Great film, but could be longer and more elaborated
20 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

This review is not going to contain spoilers. It was a very nice film. Family relationships, love, denial, hurt. All of it was in this movie. It really made me care for the characters and their stories, it kept me interested, sometimes even on the edge of my seat, up to the last seconds of it. The one main disadvantage i found was it was not fully elaborated in my opinion. I think the film had much more potential, if only it were longer and more developed. As I finished watching, I felt that many things could have been more elaborated and developed, stories and characters in the movie did not reach their full potential. I felt that many important things stayed undeveloped, under the surface and between the lines.

Now, the ending - (no spoilers) it felt somewhat forced and rushed to me. Although I was more or less pleased with it, I didn't feel that there was a proper closure to the movie.

All in all, it was a very nice movie, although not providing proper closure to several things.
