Storyline:

Movie about a friendship of two children – a girl and a boy during the last day of summer holiday.

User review:

This movie is rock and foam. Now, don’t look in dictionaries what this phrase means. It is not a phrase but a content of the movie. During half of footage you see rocks, sea, sometimes sky with clouds, some birds and dolphins are there too (and crabs even more, but they have some relation to the plot). Long aerial sight of the rocks with slow music in the background remind on the opening minutes of “Sound of Music”. Only no one sings in “The Girls and the Echo”.

Sound is important, however, because echo is a gift, a beauty that nature gives us. But if we reject the nature, it will refuse to award us. The echo is lost for the boy who betrays a girl who was living in harmony with nature. Interesting message when we remember that movie was made in early 60’s, before natural disasters that are becoming frequent as a revenge for our torturing the nature. Also, there is a clear use of music: the opening main theme, somewhere between Strauss and Tchaikovsky (or Musorgsky) is interrupted by rock music every time when a group of boys come to the beach – as they interrupt a boy-girl relation, too. And, like this opposed music styles, two metal objects stand on opponent sides: a trumpet that girl (Vika) uses to play the theme and an old can someone has thrown away on the beach (early ecology again) which boys use to play football making some more noise.

The main message, however, is: be careful when making a choice. Sometimes you can never mend what you’ve done if you make a wrong one. The boy had to choose between a girl and a group of boys. Vika, feeling a part of nature, always swims nude, having no problems with him being there, but doesn’t want all those boys as a public. Boy refuses to help her get the dress and she, embarrassed but proud, comes among them, takes clothes and leaves. No one likes traitors, not even children (remember “St. Paul Street Boys”) and boy won’t be accepted by peers, and when he loses the echo he tries to change, but the damage has been done and he loses the girl too. Even if you are forgiven, you can’t expect things to stay the same after making the wrong choice…

So, if you have a chance, make a good choice and watch this real family movie. Just relax and let the beauty of nature, simple story and music mesmerize you.
