An alluring meditation on first love!
17 August 2019 | by roger-99-171599See all my reviews

Beautifully composed coming of age multiple story. Vivid, fresh look on teenagers seeking identity, meaning, inspiration and fulfillment. Sensitive, melancholic, truly perceptive and poetic. The unexpected reactions of first love and contagious music. Undoubtedly one of the best films of 2019.
