User Reviews

realism
30 October 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The realism of a teenager confusion about his sexuality, presented in delicate - precise manner is the basic virtue of this decent, nice and reasonable short film about summer job, meetings and decisions. The humor and the not bad acting are useful for a story who, not special being, is an inspired portrait of the desire and answer to it.
