Storyline

Three young girls' friendship is tested after they plant a very special flower; the Nectar from the flower changes their lives - and friendship - forever, as they get a taste of what it's like growing up as a boy. It's a story of how we've created gender, and how to know who you are when society is telling you who you should be, but also a story about young love and lust. Written by Maria S

To find oneself, but lose it again... and vice versa.
22 August 2017 | by Howlin WolfSee all my reviews

I don't think I've been this enchanted by the possibilities of cinema since I watched "The NeverEnding Story", as a kid! The two films aren't at all alike, in theme - but they both gave me the same sense of wonder. The music and soundtrack plays a part in this; it just envelops you like a warm, comforting blanket, drawing you in.

Thinking about the subject, it's almost impossible for me to say what made me connect with this, in the way that I did.

The thing is, I've always known who I'm supposed to be (I haven't always LIKED who I am, but I'm certain that it was meant to happen). I can't imagine feeling ill at ease, and yet suddenly having the opportunity to change it... I can't imagine how intoxicating such a radical switch would be.

Except that now I have an inkling of an idea, because I watched this film... It's too reductive to call it a 'young adult' work, as I have seen it labelled. It should be required viewing for anybody who has the innate curiosity to try and understand how it feels to be in someone else's shoes.

Beautiful, harsh, poetic and strange - it is all of these things, and more... A sublime film.
