Review: Youth, 2015, dir. Tom Shoval


“Brothers Shaul (Eitan Cunio) and Yaki (David Cunio) Cooper are as close as two siblings can be: They watch movies together, they pee together, and, when their family’s financial chips are down, they kidnap and ransom people together. Israeli filmmaker Tom Shoval’s film Youthbegins with Shaul hatching the brothers’ plot as he follows their target—wealthy classmate Dafna (Gita Amely)—and photographs her along her commute home from school. We’re not sure what he’s planning, but we can surmise he’s up to no good. Men of pure intentions don’t surreptitiously follow young ladies down empty streets while taking snapshots of them, after all.” (Via Movie Mezzanine.)
