Storyline

Pim, the emotionally abandoned and affection-starved young gay son of a small seaside town's resident floozy, grows up dreaming intensely of a loving father who will someday come for him, but never does. Frequently home alone, Pim often spends time at a neighbor's house where another single mom and her two teenage children accept him matter-of-factly. As Pim is about to turn 15, he and neighbor boy Gino become each other's friend-with-benefits, entering a period of sexual awakening together. Life, however, is all about change, and while Gino (a couple years older) is ready to move on and move out, Pim is not, leaving Pim behind to carry on with his continuing crush for Gino (while Gino's sister Sabrina develops an unrequited crush for Pim).

No ones hair changed
30 May 2013 | by hughman55See all my reviews

The main portion of this film spans at least three years and no ones hair changes. It doesn't get longer, shorter, darker, or lighter. How can an entire cast of a film undergo no superficial changes over a three year period? Did peoples hair not grow in this seaside town? Was their hair growth tied to the slow pace of the story?. The two teen-aged boys had an unbelievable amount of sex. Wow. I didn't do that well in my twenties. And the scene in the hospital with the dying mother and two boys was just bizarre. This plot seems to me to be projection by the film maker. This just doesn't read like an adolescent's life story. And the poor sister. Could someone throw that poor girl a bone? I haven't seen a more sad sack character since Joy Jordan in "Happiness". There's not much else to comment on about this film because not very much happened over the 90 minutes that it took this paint to dry.
