"Well..I used to love him, but I had to kill him.
1 April 2002 | by (Saramento , Ca.....................) – See all my reviews

Very dark side of of the gay genre, but certainly not unbelievable. I'm sure this is not the first film about killing the one you love... and It will not be the last. Mr. GoodBar comes to mind, but he was just a nut out to get his jollies at the right moment.

As Yves tells the inspector,'you cannot explain it in words, it doesn't work, the feelings cannot be described as one thinks them'.

We do not get to have a deeper evaluation of Claudes psyche. So we have to look at the words Yves is trying to tell us. " It was so beautiful, (the sex) that we brought it to the end at least 13 times and we both knew it could not be topped... you see Claude looking into Yves eyes with a bittersweet look, as Yves picks up the knife which has fallen next to Claudes head, Claude shifts his eyes to the knife and you get a fleeting glimmer of understanding in Claudes eyes but he does not try and defend him self, but as Yves puts it 'he kept holding on to me'.

You walk away from this movie,which was played-out in a judge's chamber-thinking you didn't like it, but later it grabs you and makes you think!

(It was a play before being a movie) and has that feeling. It must have been dynamic on stage.

Halfway decent gay movies are hard to find, and I cannot imagine what Hollywood would have done with this flick, but, if you can take the heavy darkness of this movie it will leave you thinking... about the obsessions of love and how it can deform your psyche.

Actually the only thing that really bothered me about this movie, was the title.
