In the presence of: Pirjo Honkasalo

On a dreamy odyssey, an imaginative boy cavalierly adopts the lousy life lessons from his soon-to-be-incarcerated older brother. A bizarrely seamless fusion of Coppola's 'Rumble Fish', De Sica's 'The Children Are Watching Us', and early David Lynch. "A visual knockout" (The Hollywood Reporter) (R.D.)
