Films about first kisses are often rather sweet, although as The Boy Who Couldn’t Swim is half an hour long, it would easily outstay its welcome if there wasn’t more to it than that. Thankfully there is, as it’s a good story with some naturalistic acting and moments that will put a smile on your face.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Rasmus arrives in Copenhagen determined to find his mother whom he has never met. Having just arrived at Copenhagen Central Station Rasmus is approached by Nicklas who wants Rasmus to help him by keeping a stolen IPod. Rasmus does so and to return the favor Nicklas offers to give Rasmus a ride to his mother’s house. Reluctantly Rasmus accepts the offer and that kicks off a day that holds lots of fun and reveals hidden feelings.’
