A Big Surprise
10 February 2003 | by The_Master_ElysiumSee all my reviews

I saw this film on the Berlin film festival without having an idea of what may follow, and I was very surprised: this picture is one of the best, at least of this year.

A young boy, growing up in a little village somewhere in Italy, discovers an other young boy hiding in a small hole. Nobody in the whole village seems to know anything about him- but then the enigma around the discovery is revealed when the first boy listens hidden to a conversation about the second boy - and this conversation is held by his parents...

First of all: A great acted movie. The young actors are splendid. A good script too: very moody, and exciting too. Then I have to mention the very nice landscape in which the film is set, and the cinematography capturing it. And so on... a nearly perfect film, and you will do a good choice when seeing it! I do not like superlatives very much, but: 10 out of 10.
