Storyline

DEAR BOYS explores the sexual fantasies of a middle-age writer and the handsome young men who dominate his life. Wolf, a successful writer of romantic novels, is plagued by self doubt and writer's block. Though pleasant looking and well-preserved, he fears age will rob him of the youthful companionship he so desperately craves. With the help of his equally randy and manipulative young sex partner, Wolf plots to seduce the gentle Muskrat from the arms of a much older lover. Written by Jim Stark

Dated for Modern Standards
13 October 2015 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

For modern audiences (2015) Lieve Yongens (Pretty Boys) is not the easiest film too watch. Being filmed in 1980, it is already a bit dated. Not from the audacity. There are plenty of nudity scenes, but the stills are not too well preserved, the form of bodies are very different from nowadays gay movies and the cinematography, normally taking the subjects from afar, are typical of films from the seventies filmed ins Europe (it's Dutch). The movie tells the story of Wolf (Hugo Metsers) an aging writer (but still with good looks and body) trying to seduce Woelrat/Muskrat (Hans Dagelet) a younger boy, lover of a much elder person. He does it through fantasy. Telling erotic and frequently sad-masochistic homo-erotic tales to Woelrat he succeeds, to a point, in bringing him to his bed. For the time of filming, the film is very bold, giving lots of candy eye to persons that presently aren't the pattern of looks, but have their charm. The subtitles run fast but, if you can cope with that, it's a film that worth seeing, at least to show what of most advanced was filmed during nearly four decades ago.
