As rough & ready and alluringly dishevelled and awkward as its teenaged protagonists, and featuring a cracking Violent Femmes-centric soundtrack, Dos Santos’s debut feature paints an oft beautiful and occasionally ugly but never inauthentic-feeling portrait of a Patagonian adolescent, as he discovers sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll during the long, hot summer holidays.
