Black and white mean gray
Helsinki. Wrong side of the bay. What's in it for you? Your mother is a suspect prostitute and your brother is soon going to jail. You chose your brother.
The sibling plot is well-known from Hollywood, but here it's completely without make-up. The 14-year-old desperately wants another meaning in life after he's left childhood. The destructive living is so seductive. Dignity means giving in.
Strong drama because it's so realistic. No big evil here, just an evil path leading to hell or to something before that. A movie to be recommended, even if it doesn't make you feel good. A cold gray wind all over the place
