André Valente. 2004.

Андре Валенте / André Valente. 2004.
Not a brilliant movie but just an authentic and convincing story of a small boy, son of a disrupted young couple, with all the typical hostile reactions about his mother's new love relationship and a behaviour showing a mixture of love and resentment towards her, ending in a curious and somewhat moving friendship between the child and a Russian migrant worker who in a certain way replaces his estranged father. These feelings and relations are not very deeply analysed but the reactions shown are evident enough to make us understand what is behind them. The acting is rather good including the performance of the young boy who plays the role of the protagonist.
