A small masterpiece
16 February 2008 | by jerbojanSee all my reviews

This is short, sharp, fast paced and touching story about an evil which hunts ( or try to hunts ) the heart of young boy. He wants to have money right now, in an easy way. As we all want. So, he starts to steel. Sure, someone can say, I know how it will end. But the way the Zonca gets you there will make you surprise. It's amazing and unbelievable that in a such a short time the movie goes, you get involve, thrilled and upset. It's a real must for every screenwriter and director ( no mention movie goers, they have their likes and dislikes in genres ). French movie in it's best. Superb cast of youngsters characters.
