My ratings 7.0/10
A sweet drama on a nephew's obsessions with his aunt. He is in that awkward age group trying to come to terms with his raging hormones and pours all the feelings in a diary. The film relies on the diary to show the boy's emotions towards those close to him and how he copes with the situations.

My favourite dialogue from the film:
We were silent and happy.

My impressions:

Growing up not without love
But maybe a different kind of love
Not the conventional kind

Feelings grow towards
Those close to you
The lines blurry between
Reality and fantasy
Facts and fiction
Nightmares and dreams
Loves and losses

Those in your life
Have an impact
On what you perceive

Do the cries mean anything
Or do words carry more weight
Or just a convenience
A temporary measure
Until we get what we want
