Complex, touching, some rough edges, but well done
This movie is really a lot more than just about the relationship between an older brother and younger brother. Of course, it centers around this relationship, but it really probes the depth of human pain that results from promises unfulfilled and dreams dashed. What seems sunny and clear is in reality often obscured by a clouded human nature that celebrates self before others, and these clouds are not easily dispelled. What really is love? How is it authentically expressed? How is it so easily betrayed? What are the real-life consequences of vengeful actions? All these--and more--are explored in this short but insightful story.
Yes, there are some rough edges. The audio level sometimes varies inexplicably. Certain scenes require a modest suspension of disbelief. These rough edges, however, do not detract from the fact that this is quite a good movie about fundamentally good kids in a world that challenges even the most mature adults.
