I loved North Sea Texas. I was a lot like Pim. Shy, dreamy, curious, romantic, strong-willed, and resolute. After reading what audience members and critics had to say, I noticed no one has mentioned the smaller boy lying at the water's edge, drowned I suppose, when Pim runs naked across the beach. Is the drowned boy a dream? Who is he? I don't know how he'd fit into the plot, and he might confuse an audience when the next scene is a funeral procession, presumably for Gino and Sabrina's mom. This movie really gets to your heart. For me the point is unconditional acceptance. Maybe the somewhat wooden and two-dimensional characters are that way for this reason.
