Tout est parfait Reviews
c est tres lent ca traine en longueur mais ca reste a fleur de peau et tout en emotion c est donc beau a voir et tres bien interprete.
3 stars out of 5. No further comment.
A seventeen year old high school student tries to come to terms with the uneventful suicides of his four best friends. He is the only one left in this group of skateboarding teens who find life is hard enough as it is. After a real unsettling opening sequence, this emotional piece of coming-of-age gold starts.
This film was great. Although I had a few problems with it.
1) The camera work was not that good. There are some real horrible shots that seem incomplete or lacking in substance. Parts of objects are cut off, giving an annoying vibe to some scenes. However, there are also some beautiful still shots. Yet there are more bad ones as opposed to good.
2) In the first quarter of this film, the transitions are very confusing and not well placed. Once you start to understand what is going on in the plot (flashbacks and cuts are confusing at times), the confusion ends, but at the beginning, I felt like I was being introduced to a whole new set of characters and events.
3) The young actors didn't seem young enough. They are high school students, but looked more like young adults fresh into their twenties.
These three negatives only took half a star away from this film because the rest is beautiful. Some great performances, especially on the part of the adult roles. As well as some neat flashbacks and an in depth story that harshly deals with the coping of suicidal behavior, it is one not to miss.
