Remarkable film about a mischievous few kids; or alternatively, how not to treat a Jaguar.
27 November 2015 | by KobusAdAstraSee all my reviews

I discovered this unknown film by accident. And what a pleasant surprise it was.

The film echoes themes of landmark productions such as 'The Lord of the Flies', and that says a lot!

A few Rumanian youngsters indulge in a little bit more than innocent mischief. They steal a luxury Jaguar convertible and decide to travel to the coast. In scenes of joyful abandonment they nearly wreck the car, get drunk on liquor they found in the car and survive some jealousy and internal strife. Almost.

The kids run the show; the only adult shown was at the beginning of the film. The film is full of unexpected twists and turns with more than a few laughs. Yet, it is also sad and even shocking at times.

The cinematography is good, so too the subtitles and soundtrack. It was particularly the acting by the young, non-professional cast that impressed. This is a film I will watch again.
