“Boys of Tomorrow” is poorly served by its misleading DVD box art, which seems to suggest some kind of wacky action comedy, despite the fact that the film is a very different proposition indeed, being a gloomy portrait of disaffected youth. Although this is perhaps understandable given that the film is not a particularly obvious commercial sell, it’s a shame, as it may well see it being unfairly lumped in with an already overcrowded field of far more generic efforts. Directed by Noh Dong Seok, who won praise for his 2004 debut “My Generation”, the film follows along the same nihilistic lines, trying to fulfil his artistic leanings without sacrificing good storytelling or entertainment value.
The film follows Ki Su (Kim Byeong Seok) and Jong Dae (Yu Ah In, who recently won the Best New Actor award at the 2007 Pusan International Film Festival for his excellent performance) two teenage boys on the cusp of adulthood who have grown up together almost like brothers. Both from poor, broken families, they pursue their modest dreams, which for Ki Su amounts to little more than making an honest living and taking care of his useless brother’s young child, and which for Jong Dae means getting his hands on a gun. For some reason he seems to think that this will provide the answer to all of his problems and insecurities, though of course it only serves to bring the two even more trouble. Eventually, Jong Dae manages to get a job with a local gangster, and slowly starts to drift into the criminal world, spurring Ki Su to try and extricate him from what rapidly becomes a very dangerous situation.
