Tomas is an outcast young teenager trying to pass an exam. His family is constantly pressing him and her mother forces him to take antipsychotic drugs. In his need to escape, Tomas plans an intriguing trip to the moon. In this particular journey where reality and fiction mingles, he will disentangle an old family secret.
Altogether, it’s a film that rises above standard coming-of-age quirkiness, and reaches a level of magical-realist cinematic invention that’s consistently surprising and revealing. However, the way in which Cambre flips the tone between gentle melancholy, to suicidal, to murderous at will, and the choices he makes to conclude the movie, may leave the audience deeply confused about how they were supposed to react, and lacks the impact suggested by the action onscreen.
