CGiii Comment

Meticulous film-making...

It's a soundscape of teenage mood and yearning. Trying to figure it all out...amid an onslaught of hormones and feelings. A furtive look, the kindness of a friends...there's a heartwarming gentility that runs throughout...simply, a meticulous film.

Perhaps, it's time for Søren Green to consider making his debut feature...with his back catalogue...it will be a film worth waiting for!

The(ir) Blurb...

14-year-old Thomas has just moved to Copenhagen with his mom. Thomas likes to draw, it's a way for him to escape from the pressure around him. In school he meets Mads and Emma. Mads likes Thomas' drawings, whereas Emma is romantically interested in Thomas and invites him home with her. Just before leaving, Thomas meets Emmas older brother, a young, emerging artist. The meeting changes something within him. Rumors start circulating about Emma and Thomas - and he doesn't deny them. Thomas can't understand his feelings, how to act in the new school or control the lies, he has created to be popular. 'Thomas14' is film about all the things that change us as people.
