Quotes

Narrator: So you're born in the capital of the world and you can never escape. And that's how it is because that's how everyone wants it to be. It is all about want. No one needs anything here. It is about when you wake up in the morning and the snow is already coming down and it's bright between the buildings where the sun falls but already dark where the shadows are. And it's all about the want. What do you want? Because if you don't want something you've got nothing. You are adrift. You're washed away...

Cute Teens Don't Make a Film
8 January 2011 | by FunchoExpressSee all my reviews

I wanted to like this film because it was visually pleasant, filled with pretty teenagers and with some great scenes. But the happiness about it ends here.

A narrator at the beginning seemed to be a good idea, but during the course of the story we don't get rid of him. And i said "get rid" because the excess of explanations diminish film's thickness and turn it into a predictable road. There's a lack of self explanation in the narrative that makes it mediocre.

We like what we see on the screen but never know exactly why. The film does not communicate with us nor is compelling.
