Interviews with a procurer and with nineteen boys and young men who are prostitutes in Prague. The youths range in age from 14 to 19. They hustle at the central train station and at clubs. Most of their clients are foreign tourists, many are German. The youths talk about why they hustle, their first trick, prices, dangers, what they know about AIDS, their fears (disease and loneliness), and how they imagine their futures. The film's title, its liturgical score, much of it elegiac, and shots of the city's statues of angels underline the vulnerability and callow lack of sophistication of the young men. Written by
A most useful presentation of an age old condition.
This documentary is a classic and should be required viewing for every young boy world wide as soon as they enter puberty.
The reality of our world is that men will seek sexual contact with young boys for a myriad of reasons, many, known only to themselves.
The boys are the ones that need protection, NOT from the men but from their own ignorance. To decide to sell sexual services to a man is a decision that a boy makes in full conscience. The boy is NOT a victim as these situations depicted in the documentary are of young men who KNOWINGLY and WILLINGLY make themselves available to be sexual objects in exchange for money.
One could prattle on about the social reasons that drive a boy to believe that his situation is hopeless and all he can do is barter his body parts for money, yet the REAL issue at hand is the naieve and almost innocent ignorance many of the boys, especially the youngest of them, display as to the reality of their situation.
One said, "I am worried about aids but if the customer insists on anal sex without a condom, I must do it, we are talking money here." Clearly, this young lad has not a clue as to his right to INSIST that the customer use a condom OR the deal is off.
Not to beat a dead horse, I must say that this is an excellent film, well put together and it strips the veil of "secrecy" away from the subject matter, a veil that, at least in the United States, is held in place by the majority of the people in denial about the REALITIES of male prostitution amongst the adolescent population.
