This film starts as 3 young brothers tear thru their summer; running, screaming and full of life. It doesn’t develop into a traditional narrative, but offers episodic glimpses of their family with lots of artistic flourishes. Their parents’ tumultuous relationship creates most of the conflict, but it’s told thru the eyes of the youngest brother. He has an inner life that’s expressed in flights of fantasy and intense drawings (animated for extra impact). It takes some time for the story to come into focus, but once it does there’s an interesting new layer that makes it sweeter. Still, it’s more ambitious, artsy observation than compelling character study.
