Review

Films are good mediums for reminding us that happiness is possible even in this chaotic and troubled world. Rather than conveying intense emotions through narratives, Album for the Youth focuses on the little moments of happiness—of being young, having a future, and being able to enjoy life with friends. It sounds very simple, but such sentiment is rather difficult to find in a contemporary cinema. Sol and Pedro are friends who dream of becoming artists after graduating from high school. However, contrary to the conventions of coming-of-age films, this film avoids all types of narrative resources for the development of the story and chooses to focus on and record the moments in the lives of the protagonists. As the title suggests, the film avoids mentioning the future and depicts the characters as fully present beings—like taking snapshots. It depicts the time of youth as a paradise where you can forget all the problems for a moment, not to deny the reality but to show the potential of cinema. [Sung MOON]
