Death Of Nintendo 2020
1h 39min | Comedy | 22 February 2020 (Germany)
In the early 1990s, a teenager and his gang of friends enjoy their summer playing games as they grow up.
It is a very funny and charming coming of age story, taking place in the Philippines. The film centers around three teenage boys between 14 and 15 who are at the edge of the end of their childhood, represented by obsessive Nintendo game encounters and close to their life as adults, represented in their newly found interest in girls and their clumsiness in this regard. The kids do very well. There are some really outstanding and unexpected moments and developments that keeps the film interesting. Some were rather predictable but charming nevertheless. The film had a nice retro look in many regards and a decent soundtrack (though I felt they could have gone even further in that regard). I liked it, its nothing for film history, but it is thoughtprovoking and delivers a great showcase for those young kids and the writer and director.
