Beautiful in its simplicity
4 January 2007 | by jordi_smiloSee all my reviews

Once in a while, you see a little and very unknown movie that grabs you, touches you and opens your eyes. "Zomerdag" is that kind of movie.

Young Thomas (Ruben van Weelden) rides his bike on a hot summer day, and accidentally, he meets forty-year-old Paul (Marcel Hensema, who was equally fantastic in SIMON). After this first meeting - which is anything but friendly - they keep meeting up with each other, and that's how they become friends. Thomas starts to see Paul as the father he never had, and Paul starts to treat him as if he's his child.

With just a few words, some simple guitar music and a calm way of filming and editing, director Marc de Cloe manages to create a beautiful and beautifully detailed little story. He captures the uncertainties of both adolescents and pre-midlife adults with just a single shot, a silence, a short line of dialogue.

And that's the power of the movie. You don't need much dialogue or wild cinematography or other movie-making tricks to tell a good, recognizable and beautiful story.

If you'll ever be able to see this one, don't miss it. I think you can only watch it on Dutch television, and on the website www.cinema.nl.

"Zomerdag" is a little jewel, unique in its kind.
