Plot synopsis
Story of two brothers 9 and 10 years old: porches in Strogino, mother's apartment, children hostel, gypsies camping-ground and unhappy return home. Dramatic adventures, as any road movie, would tell its heroes about world attributes, would for the first time work them up with loneliness and betrayal.
 

Commentaries and bibliography
 
"Boys" intentionally rhymes with previous film by Valerija Guy Germanika Girls". But if adults world in the first one is rather passive and exists separately from the main heroes in Boys" it is cold as the winter in shots outside the windows.
