Mature subject matter is handled nicely. This 10-minute film does an excellent job of presenting characters who feel real, including a teenage protagonist who is gay, which is simply accepted and not presented as a struggle, though interestingly his boyfriend is tempted by the protagonist's sister. The film ends on a believable and humorous note. Nicely framed, good photography and excellent sound design. Excellent instrumental soundtrack enhances the story. Well structured, simply told. Slow to start but it keeps one's interests. It is very watchable. Its themes of family and homosexual relationship will resonate with many teen viewers. Recommended for ages 13 to 18. Reviewed by Michael F., KIDS FIRST! Juror.
Bruno catches his best friend Rick kissing his sister Jo. He�s more than angry, although nobody understands why. In his pain Bruno turns to his mother for help, but she is busy with her own divorce. Bruno takes revenge on his sister and the family situation escalates. Finally Bruno decides to make a bold decision. Maybe he can confess his love to Rick. Bruno is the story of a 15-year-old boy who escapes from his torn up family and learns to trust himself. A Coming of Age story about love, trust, honesty and forgiveness. Dialogue is in German with English sub-titles.
