Coming-of-age charmer
17 May 1999 | by red-74See all my reviews

This is one of those gems that somehow slips through the floorboards and is missed by critics, distributors, etc. throughout the rest of the world.

The story here is simple: two young boys are orphaned and then taken to be raised by their bachelor uncles (one of whom is gay).

Both are determined to do their best by the boys and the result is a wonderful, warm, intelligent and often very funny movie that follows the boys from early childhood through to young adulthood. All the performances are excellent; the photography is beautiful and evocative.

There are some remarkable films being made by Catalan film makers these days--nearly all unjustly ignored and/or undiscovered by non-Catalan distributors and critics. If you get a chance to see this one, don't miss it.
