Adrian, 10, a sensitive and lonely boy, abandoned by his mum at an early age to live with his grandmother and his sick uncle, finds meaning in an unlikely friendship with Nicole, 10, a crazy, mysterious outsider, who just moved in across the street and who just might be one of the abducted children that they keep talking about on the telly.Written by
Definitely a somewhat sentimental film just because of the subject matter and what actually happens in it, but definitely not made in a way that seems too forced or unrealistic. The child performances are extraordinarily good, so much so that it's really quite unbelievable that they were able to give these because of good direction. The aesthetic is also quite nice, and in many ways this did remind me of Let the Right One in. This is the kind of film that many might take to in incredible ways, and some others just will not. I liked it enough, not very original but still a rather sensitive, careful approach to the type of story. I hope it gets a release date or something like that,
