seductive
27 August 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

for the wise art to present the nuances of a special age. for the science to reflect the tension between boys. for the dialogues who preserves high level of realism. a film about searches and dreams and bravery and games of two friends. the tension as the axis of relation. and the central moment - dramatic, fake or source of ambiguity in many other films- like the normal answer to the exploration each of other. a great thing is the acting. the vulnerable , sensitive Johannes. the blaze, mature Marco. the secrets and gestures and normal reactions.each as source of seduction. because nothing is more than form of self discover. including the last scene - test for Marco to define the last day event and to demonstrate his power to Johannis.
