Storyline

Léon is ten years old, has lots of problems and an overly fertile imagination. Of course, there is mom and dad who are always fighting, and those annoying neighbors who get to spend the summer at the beach. And then, there's Léa, the exasperating girl who's always right about everything. In the summer of '68, when mom decides to leave everything behind to start a new life in Greece, Léon is prepared to do anything to kill the pain. Destroy the neighbors' house, become a professional liar and even, why not, fall in love with Léa. Together, they will overcome the pain of growing up when you feel abandoned.

Quotes

Léon Doré: The Bible says: "In the beginning was the Word." I dunno, but for me, in the beginning there was nothing. I was sleeping 20,000 leagues under the sea. That was before the Word. One day, God ruined everything. The seawater drained out and life appeared at the end of the tunnel. The doctor said everything's fine, that I was a normal boy. ME, Leon Dore, a normal boy? Some doctors should be suicided by a firing squad.

Different taste film to watch
4 January 2020 | by serkantokhpSee all my reviews

Despite from the fact that I generally like the films in which childs are starred, I was very surprised and glad to have met this film. I think the rating and number of votes was extremely underrated. Both acting and directing/cinematography are great, also the soundtrack used on-site is very impressive.
