Dividing Bar

A riveting tale of jealousy, hatred and unspoken desire between two boys thrown together by their parents' courtship. What is interesting is that, in comparison with the novel on which this story is based, the relationship between the two boys is imbued with much more of a homoerotic or 'homo-affective' subtext. The acting of the two boys is outstanding, and the film is without doubt a masterpiece.

Not a very strong script and as a result the mise-en-scène was not convincing from time to time. The two boys gave a delightful performance, though.

Wonderful film, though I have to figure out the ending. A more detailed review will follow once I have watched it again.
