Review

An boys´ high school full of teenage dynamics and energy is where we find Tae-joon, a cheerful boy who is friends with the best fighters in the school. One day, he steps on a kite and breaks it. After learning that the kite belonged to Jin-wook, his unpopular classmate, Tae-joon apologizes; but Jin-wook´s reaction is as cold as ice. Tae-joon is curious about Jin-wook´s behavior, and tries to become his friend. Tae-joon´s best friend Bum-suk cannot stand Tae-joon ignoring him and hanging out with a weirdo; thus he eagerly waits for a chance to teach Jin-wook a lesson. With well-structured drama and natural acting from the teenage boys, Children is a charming film that boasts complex characters and situation production that describes the tension and humor between teenagers. The character of Jin-wook, who is obsessed with kite-making despite being considered a weirdo, is subtle to the end; the sly but mature character of Tae-joon is the most charming aspect of this film. The subtle jealousy and affection between friends, which is more often depicted with an girls´ school as its setting, is masterfully produced in this film with concrete drama and three distinctly characteristic boys. The suffocating school landscape contrasts with the cool long shot of scenes outside the school, creating a lingering impression.
