Oh, man. The feels when the music starts at the ending!!!
I love the little brother so much! "Shut up, I'm reading."
"Hey bro what you reading Crazy horse" love it.
man this movie is so cool . comedy and all haha but I'd hate to have a brutha like him 😂😂 hoha as
He does this characturistic representation like Wes Anderson but keeps it so emotionally attached. Even as a non Maori who never had my father leave, I get the guttural emotion. Genius.
hay bro your a crack up ow far…
Hey, i got a spanish srt (subtitle), can you upload it? Would be nice to share this movie!
I remember nights like this dad and mum at the pub me and my brother telling stories waiting to we go home.. Chips and fizzy drink for dinner.
Taika's mum was my teacher at intermediate school..best teacher ever..she use to come round home and just chat to mum..about anything not nesscerely bout me..Mrs Cohen her name
not even ow!
what the meaning of this film … i dnont understand
This is a terrific little film.
Just read yesterday that the boy in this movie (now an adult) has been jailed. Sad. He had a great opportunity and alcohol got the better of him. Hope he gets the help he needs.
hey bro u r one of them gays heh ?
Did this had any deep meaning or just a random conversation?
Sure fire line to impress the ladies: "bet you don't know any boy gays like me"
Does anyone else find it sad that 3 kids are left in cars outside a pub while their parents are drinking heavily.
and then the girl dies in a car crash because her dad was drunk driving
Crazy Horses! 🐎🐎🐎
It’s like a New Zealand David Lynch short film
He’s like boy
Wow, Boy is just a movie made of references to this, crazy horses xD
I was on a scriptwriting actors workshop when I first saw this performed. Brilliant!
A nostalgic slice of life for some. For others, an experience never. Either way, pleasing to the soul.
Would like to know the name and artist of the closing song if anyone knows
The guy who made Thor : Ragnarok, come a long way !
The foundation of “boy”. Love it
Aww, that's so beautiful.
I love how he referenced this in Boy
that was sweet
MY HEART IS SOURRING…THANKU T.W.💞
What's the song at the end?
"Kia Ora" and "Tēnā kōrua" (the old man on the bike) are Maori greetings https://www.wikihow.com/Say-Hello-in-Maori
Wow, now I can understand those references in Boy. "Do you know why I pulled you over, miss?"
Best indie short film.
Shut up man I'm readin
Who else remembers sitting in the car while yer folks were at the pub? I sure do lol
Ford vs holden in the carpark lol
Those kids would have had so much fun being cheeky little buggers to each other lol
Amazing short film so glad I found it. Brought back a lot of feel good memories
Sweet Piece of life ❤💘
little interpretation; there actually aren’t any brothers, it’s actually just the one kid reading in the car. The kid reading is who he really is and the older brother is what he wants to be. (notice the slow zoom in when the kid reading notices that she’s looking at him/them (the zoom in occurs when the “older brother” is out of frame and the composition is solely focused on the kid reading), kid reading is trying to ignore the next car (ie. not looking up, while the older brother “what he wants to be” is insulting her) but lowkey can’t stop thinking/talking to them, the “probably gay” line is him giving himself an out as to why he’s too shy to actually approach the next car). lol this film is cool
I subscribed I love the heroes
to be honest with you all I will never ever leave my kid's inside the car like this one..especially my daughter..piss me off
more representation than the whole of hollywood
Just saw this on the news yesterday! Congrats Taika! With all of your hardwork you've you deserve to be at the top!NEW ZEALAND REPRESENT!
That girl is an annoying bitch she was just staring at them like a creep
You never get films concerning white people of the same topic 😂😂😂
The most magical time of life is childhood.
How old are youGirl: 12Too much girl too much 😂
I love this. I wanna post my short film here. I'm sorry if it seems like shameless self-promotion. I swear it's a relevant thread for the comment section. I think Taika Waititi's work and career trajectory are incredible and inspiring. I worked with kids on this short film – and I'm reminded that it brings its own sets of challenges. But kids are also able to sometimes bring out a character that's more honest than adults. I think it's incredible how Taika Waititi worked with these kids and got these incredible performances. I think the kids are great. And I'm sharing the result of the last time I worked with kids on a short film – and how awesome those kids are. If you watch it, cool. If not, cool. But I'm putting this out in the universe right now: I'm so much closer than I thought I was. I'm pretty much there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAfmyu3o3ho&t=34s
I thought Romeo was actually Taika in his childhood. He sounded like Korg.
Wah I miss you Rangi
I love love love this.
can anyone translate what the old man says to the kids right around 4:20? thanx
I need to make films like these
Taika 😘 can't wait for JoJo Rabbit
What song is that at the end? Who is that artist man?
This use to happen slot growing up then they would drive home drunk with us in the car but I still loved them just makes me think tho
Is that the same girl from Boy but with longer hair? She has that same face that's always on the cusp of a smile.
I remeber watching this in ma English class ghee
I keep hearing Korg talking
Pshh. Whata dark night. Right, eh?
Just saying, that diamond ring had a lot of meaning. If you think about why her parent had left it in the car, and how the girl gave it away — there's a lot going on there…
A component of this will one day this might became a dated curiosity in showing the casual like 'turn of the last century' heterosexism/homophobia practised by kids. It was a part of childhood naiveness, they might say.
Cool film. What's that music at the end? It sounds familiar but I didn't catch what it was.
Well, nice one …
Whats that end credits song?
Chur far out crazy horses was my thing when I watched boy the movie. When I went to college always thought I was a crazy horse
Great wee film..an XT and an HQ and waiting for your father to come out of the pub the memories of home when you where a kid. It reminded me of the New Zealand don't smoke and drive ad because of the girl you can't forget her voice from the ad.
Only Maoris will get this 😂😂
kid cant drive
feed my chuldren Clipboard cleared.
Who's back here after 'Jojo Rabbit' teaser? ☺And also such a great ❤ story, I mean Damn!!
Hi Does anyone know the name of the Short Film Taika Made with the plane crashHe the Pilot survives und roams the place und then flees when police arives
Wow , imagine what Taika could do with a full feature film. Loved it.
1983 Tokoroa tavern back when every family in town had spare change due to the mill pumping . Until I watched this with my boyfriend I just thought that all kids had spent the odd night in cars on a Thursday night. Apparently not. He was kinda buzzed out about it lol
Kiaora Taika, i had mixed emotions when i saw this short film for reasons i guess most the previous commenters didnt experience. I grew up in the 60s & 70s era where this film reflected a reality that exhisted for many maori kids. My father often left us in the back of his work truck while he was in in the pub. Much of the slang used in this film never existed in my time, like "Dick head" and the reference of gays hadn't been heard of then, certainly not in the far north town of Kaitaia. Memories being quite vivid while watching this film evoked memories of fun as we would look through the pub window in the hope to see our father to remind him it was cold and we were hungry. Our intoxicated uncles would reach into their pockets to give us.money for fish n chips from the chip bar across the road. That was fun. Our father would eventually come out to take us home. How we got home without any incident is beyond any comprehension.
F'n crap life gets elaborate.
The boy nailed in korg voice.
As if you can, E G G !!!
Boy got me good. Those kids were so vailant.
Who's that? Juliette…
