Film #146 in MY YEAR OF MUBI
Such a beautiful and alarming tale about a trio of kids trying to figure out how to simply "live" in a world where the adults have either abandoned them or are out to con or kill them. Always on the run and trying to survive, the boys must rely on each other for hope and happiness.
Full of GORGEOUS cinematography, the film pulls no punches as we come along for the bumpy ride that this kids must maneuver. And even though they are rough and the edges, these boys have genuine hearts as they prove time and time again.
It's a tough, cruel world out there... but these boys are resilient and not only find hope for themselves, but through their eyes, we also get to view the promise of a better world ourselves.
