If you base the film entirely on a little boy, then you do have to find the right little boy. And if you decide to shoot your film in black-and-white, you have to measure up to the rest of film history. The maker found the right little boy. And the black-and-white? Just watch, you don't often see them like this any more.
The little boy is called A-Hon and this summer he is visiting his grandmother. He is crazy about her. Sometimes he hears piano playing and one day he goes to see where it's coming from. He finds the piano and also the girl playing it. He'll hear the mysterious girl playing on many more evenings.
The film has a classic surrealist mood. As if the little boy is dreaming old films.
