CGiii Comment

First and foremost, we LOVED the short film.

Second...not all good shorts deserve to become a feature...especially when the writer/director doesn't have the material to fill the allocated time!

Look...there's absolutely no point in crucifying this film [it does that all by itself]...this film delivers a message so contemptible [it hurts!]...conform to the norm!

WTF...it ends up being a pro-Christian, happy-clappy, assault to the senses. ..the EMO ditches his mascara and everyone ends up singing...apart from the gay kid?!?

WTF!

Not, what we suspect was...the director's intention...because, babycakes, it does come over a trifle homophobic!

WTF!

The(ir) Blurb...

‘How do we know you´re for real?’ · ‘I tried to hang myself at my last school and they expelled me.’ · ‘Welcome to the band.’ After receiving a Special Mention for Best Short Film from the Generation Youth Jury in 2014, this love story full of irony and exhilaration has now been given the feature-film treatment. Ethan, a sensitive and depressed Emo boy with suicidal tendencies, plays hard doom and gloom rock with the likeminded, in a band where good moods are strictly taboo. Ever chipper classmate Trinity for her part prefers to use her sweet voice to sing praises to the Lord in her Christian youth group. Trinity and Ethan, nobody will ever understand this unlikely match, let alone accept it! And yet that’s exactly what came to pass when their two paths crossed for the first time. The impossible bond they share sets a number of events in motion at their crazy little school.
