TFF Presents: Close

TFF - Sydney Film Festivals Travelling Film Festival presents..... Thirteen-year-olds Leo and Remi are best friends. We meet them running happily through vast fields of flowers. They dream of unimaginable wealth, of being stars on YouTube. Remi is an aspiring musician, and Leo is his greatest fan. Theirs is a loving and genuine friendship. And then they start high school. For the very first time, their closeness comes into question as they are teased and taunted by their schoolmates. Gradually a rift develops between the friends, with tragic consequences. Shot in vibrant colour, and frequently in close-up, Close is a film of incredible perception. So much is conveyed without dialogue - adoration and devastation both - through the expressive faces of the tremendous lead performers. Purely cinematic, Close immerses us in this strong relationship so much so as to feel protective of the gentle characters encountered.
