Young boy growing up : a charming "coming of age" film.
It was after having watched this poignant film at a film festival in France that I found out that its director Gracia Querejeta is the daughter of a leading film producer in Spain. This should be taken as a good sign for Spanish cinema because a talented film maker is always looking for funds. If a director's father happens to be a famous producer than it is a good indicator that good films will continue to be made."Hector" is a very pleasant experience in cinema. It is one of those rare contemporary European films which highlight the importance of family life. In this film the principal focus is on a young boy making earnest efforts to get close to his father.He is helped in this pursuit by his kind aunt as she is also feeling the loss of the boy's mother.One particular good thing about Hector is that its pace is amazing which will never let the viewers to feel bored.The original soundtrack is very trendy and will surely soothe many ears.Watch it with your loved one. You are likely to realize the importance of one another.
