wonderful film I just saw!
12 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

I just saw this film by accident on television and could not stop watching, like reading a great book. It follows no formula and I could not stop watching to see what would happen next. I do want to say one thing about the first person who reviewed the film and generally said positive things about it except that the narration of the film by the boy did not match up with his voice in the film. How did you miss that the reason for this is, when he is narrating the movie it is a memory and he is now an adult man and not the young teenager we see in the film, which is his memory. So of course two different actors would portray the role, one on camera as teenager and another as an adult man looking back on his life who narrated the film.
