Great visual experience about friendship and a specific time in the UK
1 February 2019 | by costa-83836See all my reviews

I saw this movie on a surprise screening at the IFFR. It was voted third by the viewers at the festival and therefore got chosen for an extra screening.

I was blown away by this film. It's almost entirely shot with a grey filter that adds to the grittiness of the Scottish town where this movie predominantly plays in. The story in itself is quite simple. but the interaction between the characters makes sure that this was movie is one of the most unique 'coming of age' experiences i've seen. The movie is full of humor in a way that feels very natural. The movie is visually beautiful in it's own gritty way. At a certain point in the way movie the style of cinematografy completely changes in a way that helps immerse the viewer in a fresh and exciting way.

I do not want to spoil the movie in any way, If you have a chance to see this movie in the cinema I would advise you to do so. The sound is amazing and brings the whole experience together. Even if you are not a fan of the genre of music (like me) this movie will probably still be amazing.

9/10.
