User review:

First, an overview of this release, obviously the 5th in line of the “Boys Life”-series. To me it’s probably the most successful, due to its more romantic vein. While several episodes in the earlier discs have been romantically catching, the bulk of their stories seem to share a theme wherein the director wants to philosophize about some point or another. That’s just not my cup of tea; give me the good, ole romantic scenario anytime. In this 5TH edition, “Dare” is a quite nice little “romantical” piece. Adam Fleming’s portrayal of Ben (Light Boy) is notable, with his end-of-film small smile and quiet laugh being particularly telling (you’ll catch the point upon watching). But it’s a thanks to the heavens which must be given the producers of this disc for having wisely included an old-by-today’s-standards (1990) release, from Israel of all places. Foremost in this review, then, has to be my following comment about a likely near unheard of little film.

She lives wholly dependent on her mother Paquita (65) and has a teenage son, Pancho(14), who hates her. Her agoraphobia won’t even let her leave the house to buy the ingredients she needs for cooking. Luckily her mother, Paquita, a superstitious Mexican woman with a heart of gold,is there to do the shopping, deal with her frequent crises and do what matters most: be a mother to Pancho.
