Authentic and captivating but an empty ending
I had very little trouble getting caught up in what I was watching, which can be a problem for me sometimes. The dialogue was not riveting but it also wasn't phony. This is a problem with many films about youth. They are written with adult dialogue. I was also very impressed with the way the characters were conceptualized and portrayed. They was nothing cliché about who these 3 boys were.
The acting was just okay...it was easy to see that the cast was inexperienced but it didn't really bother me.
I didn't like was the lighting or the shaky camera work...a clear sign of a low budget.
I thought the ending was weird and weak. Both the scenes that involved the fish market woman were terrible and should have just been cut from the film. Especially the unexpected scene at the end. It was hard to believe that this would ever happen or play out the way it did.
Over all it was a good flick and worth my time.
