A great, quiet drama
This is a very moving film about how hard life can be, about being at the wrong place at the wrong time and a lost child- respectively boyhood. Very obvious is the missing love in each of the lives of the protagonists. Once again you realize how close emotional coldness, low self-love, self-hatred and hardship in live are. It is very interesting, that although it is quite well known what "faults" in education, no matter if you are wealthy or poor lead to isolated and depressed children, there will always be parents who are not able to change. Which again leads us to the childhood of those, who themselves suffered from low self-love and self esteem. A very educational movie for school classes, i guess.
