Storyline:

A drug dealer finds an unlikely traveling companion in an runaway kid trying to dodge social services.

User review:

It felt like the director was having trouble stitching together an over complicated turn of events. The flaws in the plot are evident from the beginning yet had they been simplified I feel it would have worked so much better.

A neglected / abused adolescent meets and cons his way into getting a lift off a mysterious stranger he suspects is a drug dealer. The stranger is coerced into giving the boy a lift. There then follows an unlikely turn of events re-uniting the stranger with an old flame and the boy – passing himself off as the stranger’s son – befriends the woman’s son.

Never having had a father figure the boy jealously guards his new ‘mentor’ and resorts to unconventional means to try and win him over as the movie becomes more plausible but still somewhat ‘messy’. As with the opening scenes the fate of the protagonist is heart rending.

All that being said the director handles some very tricky issues very delicately although I would have preferred otherwise. These are real issues and there should be the ‘shock factor’, it would never have been a family film so maybe the delicacy with which issues were addressed detracts from, or dilutes the impact they have in real life.

Brendan Nadon was a little unconvincing in my opinion but playing the part of a 13 year old when 15 did give him a little more maturity which is true to life for those poor kids that have to grow up fast. The adult actors held it all together with some strong performances.

I still gave the movie 7 out of 10 because despite the obvious flaws the director handled the unenviable task of avoiding censorship when dealing with child abuse and prostitution.. The film was very engaging and well worth watching.

  2. Ilegator says:

    I can’t find any Spanish subtitles that fit with this version, not even synchronizing them… Do you have them?

  3. AnonUser says:

    One of the best films ever made.

  4. bhm says:

    Director’s Edition added with English and French audio

    • PDC says:

      the director’s edition doesn’t show much more (5 min) of anything and is way too compressed, only one gig, picture quality is bad, download the better one.

  5. PDC says:

    I don’t know why it says english and french, I get a foreign language!???

    On DVD, I hear foreign language with Windows media player, on Classic media player, I can switch to english, I don’t understand…

    • PDC says:

      I do want to stress that this is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen; the story, the acting, everything about this sensitive subject is perfect; there is a nice twist in the end; I bought it on DVD because I wanted the original movie in english and with the highest quality, no problem listening to it in english like this version.

    Better copy added

  7. bhm says:

    BR Remux version added.

  8. Matt says:

    Truly one of the best performances of all time by a young actor in Nadon.

  9. rixx says:

    @ Matt re Nandon: I agree – a VERY challenging role for a young actor. There’s a real authenticity to his pain and vulnerability. When he says the guy “can fuck him,” it’s FAR from a ‘sexy’ moment – it’s freighted with fear and confusion as it should be.

    Previous comments hoping for boy-butt a missing the entire point of this film and this sight IMO.

    I am Canadian – we used to make challenging, often controversial art films – now we don’t make ANYTHING.

  10. Matt says:

    I noticed bhm’s review. I think you should take another look at Nadon’s performance, boss!

    • Kuja says:

      bhm is not reviewing these movies. He’s selecting other people’s reviews from elsewhere. I don’t know if he agrees with their opinions or not.

  11. Howard Campbell says:

    Hi, can you please post the link again for the “rar app that will extract and play these files?

    • markus says:

      Windows – WinRAR (rarlab.com)
      MacOS – The Unarchiver (App Store)

      If there is a multiple part archive, download all files and put every file same folder and extract only part 1. Everything else working automatically.
