Read our Essential Opinion on North Sea Texas

“Drawing affecting performances from a fledgling cast, Defurne's film is a poignant snapshot of square-peg adolescent desire, vibrantly set against a colourful backdrop.”
   Sam Wigley, Total Film

“Though not without its mini-heartbreaks and melancholic turns, North Sea Texas explores emergent sexuality and first love with a refreshing optimism.”
   Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

“Tender and touching, this gay coming-of-ages story is underpinned by a terrific, subtle turn from newcomer Florizoone.”
   David Parkinson, Empire

  1. :

    It’s hard to believe that this film had such a limited budget, and that it was the lead actor’s first role.
    Jelle Florizoone makes a very impressive debut, and I am looking forward to seeing him in many more films. He doesn’t need much dialogue, his expressions convey exactly what he is thinking. It’s very rare to see so much maturity in a young actor, with so little experience.
    I don’t think there is a single actor in the film who hasn’t given 100%, everyone is believable and engaging. Luk Wyns gives a convincing portrayal as the not very nice Etienne (even Micky, the dog has a go at him). The Pim – Gino – Sabrina triangle is particularly engaging, and I hope all three actors are destined for full careers.
