"This story is just unhealthy, portraying a toxic relationship as normal simply because the boy is attractive, with sex always present and the cliché that teenagers only think about sex. For teenagers in the midst of their development, this film should be avoided as it only reflects the perversions of its writer who loves to showcase teenagers in soft porn. It also quite explicitly shows a sexual relationship next to a minor child. Beware of this film with its misleading teen romance facade."

1st: Love makes us a weak person. 2nd is: you have to sacrifice something to get something.

Liked the movie because I was looking for a romantic, drama movie. Then I thought to watch Through my Window. It was a good one, no waste of time

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Here's an example of Netflix repeating a formula (think: Elite, the After series) with mediocre results. It's not the fault of the actors, a young and sufficiently charismatic cast, but Through My Window feels at once derivative and disappointing. If a character is going to claim they're the "most interesting" or "dangerous" person you've ever met, the script needs to back that up. Here, high school affairs, rich-poor divides, and family dramas are all eminently predictable. A high point is the setting, including some gorgeous aerial views of Barcelona, but the insistence on dimly-lit interior and night scenes is more distracting than symbolic. Considering the popularity of the genre, better viewing options exist.
