Touching, amusing portrait of a group of teens
8 July 2013 | by runamokprodsSee all my reviews

This grew on me as I watched it, and lingered in my mind afterwords. It takes a mosaic look at a day and night in the lives of a bunch of Quebecois teens.

A true 'indie', this was made on what looks like $5, shot on often grainy video.

The film is softer and gentler, with more of a sense of humor than "Kids" to which seems to often be compared, due to both it's subject matter and it's rough edged, semi-improvisational style. But by covering more characters over it's short running time we don't really get to know any of these kids very well, or identify much with them personally. It's effect is more of accumulation than of specific dramatic moments. And there are times when the film can feel like it's dealing in (often comic) caricature or stereotypes, rather than specific, real human beings.

Yet, by the end I felt a wistful sadness at the trials and tribulations of adolescence, so universal in the end, no matter how much the surface time or location changes.
