Breezy yet emotionally grounded, Defurne’s first feature-length film uses a small talented cast to highlight the travails of love and longing so common to us all. Not resorting to tearful pathos despite a few unhappy turns, Defurne’s final resolution does come across as a bit too tidy but the naturalistic performances he elicits from his actors coupled with wistful maritime vistas and some well placed 60’s kitsch ultimately balance things out.

an exploration of sexuality set in a small Flemish town. teenage boys, unfulfilled crushes, abandoned wives, and a runaway mother. Texas is a local bar.

Although I'm certain I missed a lot of the nuances due to the foreign languages spoken in this movie, I found it to be a well-done, heartbreaking, uplifting, and kind teen-coming-of-age movie about a teen who is smitten with his best buddy, neighborhood pal. Actually it was kind of sweet and kind.

Wonderful Dutch coming of age drama that is not set in Texas.
