If you have heard Astrud Gilberto’s song The Girl from Ipanema, you will never forget the beautiful rhythm even if you are not a Bossa Nova fan. The freshness of Bossa Nova music transcends time and space, and touches the listener’s heart. With this song, the Ipanema beach turns into an aromatic space stimulating our imagination. The Boy from Ipanema cherishes the same dazzling flutter. Neither Astrud Gilberto’s music nor Brazilian beach is in the film, but a boy swimming on the shore encounters a girl who just broke up with her first love, and traces the forgotten memories of love. There is the shining sun, a white sand beach, the sound of waves breaking on shore, and a boy and a girl. The film has everything for a new love. Of course, this film is about growing pains of a boy and the immaturity and wandering of the youth. The boy who likes jellyfish says that he doesn’t remember anything, and still remains in the past. He experiences love and breakup of the past again in illusion. He says that “everything has disappeared in the past but a dream goes on” and wishes to become the girl’s dream. And like the jellyfish, the boy disappears into the sea like a fairy tale. This could be a self defense or narcissism trapped in his own limitation. However, the film dreams of the most beautiful breakup through the boy, which is aiming to remain in someone’s heart forever, without disappearing.
