start to life
26 August 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

at first sigh, clichés. the young cousin under the influence of older relative. the classic way to become man. the first time. and the revelation. but not the originality is the best part of this nice short film. the clue - manner of director to use known ingredients for a realistic, touching and ambiguous portrait of a teenager. and this does El primo interesting. the steps to the end. the fragments who creates portrait of grow up. the tension and the nuances of each scene. the social connotations. and the last gesture who is more complex than expect. because the theme remains the contact with real life.as self definition. or, only, as useful revelation.
