Most impressing was the subtly observed isolation of the boy. it seems to be a geminated isolation: being adolescent and being a stranger. also very interessting: never ever I saw that so clear narrated: Integrate! Is a Demande, which has to be fulfilled without any assistance or support. Great film!


So true: Countryside hard stuff!
