Devastating.

Not only because that crystal meth is used (!) but mainly because of that that behind his back to do. Felix van Groeningen has the geflikt: Beautiful boy, about the true story of a father and son, is a film that washes over you like a tsunami. No waterkeringsmuur of cynicism can save you.

Utoya 22. July

Terror on an island.
