A 12-year-old kid who misses his father becomes really affectionate with a young delinquent he just met.
This film ‘The Hide-A-Way’ is one of those special foreign stories which arrives with little or no fan fare and quickly becomes a cult classic. It is a simple tale of a lonely young boy who is befriended by a juvenile offender on the run. Kasper Andersen stars as Møv and Allan Winther as Funder. Theirs is a universal setting of youths growing up with little or no supervision. Each seeks understanding with the problems of life. The younger boy needs a role model, even if he is a criminal. The older boy needs a place to hide while he recalls how a simple argument with a merchant turn into an accidental, yet tragic assault. Together they fill the little niche of their loneliness with warmth and companionship. Their friendship is spontaneous and provides the foundation for a lasting relationship. Excellent movie and one which has already been accepted as a foreign classic.
