Two brothers in their mid-teens are dropped off at their grandfather's deserted house in the country and left to fend for themselves for the summer. Boredom is overtaken by more excitement than they bargained for after they fall in with a slightly older local boy. Filmed with a lushness that will have you longing for the European summer, this funny, perceptive picture of unfettered adolescence venturing into peril imbues Stand by Me with sardonic social realism and shades of the Brothers Grimm.
