Storyline

Simon and Mark live together in London. When Mark dies of AIDS, Simon gets on with his life rather quickly - too quickly to suit Mark, whose ghost reappears to disrupt Simon's cruising, moving back into their flat to prompt Simon to experience and express feelings. Simon is adamant that feelings, especially love, are not for him. Subplots develop as Mark and Simon observe their neighbor Siobhan's love life and as Simon spends his days as a satellite-TV installer partnered with Dogger, a homophobe ignorant that Simon is gay. Is there any key that can unlock Simon's feelings and allow Mark to rest in peace? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

GHOST for a Gay Audience (Albeit a Lite variety)
1 September 2001 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

Mark, a drag performer and Simon, a cable TV installer, live together but have an open relationship. Mark is dying of AIDS and Simon is sleeping around. Simon has always been the undemonstrative type ever since a coming out fight with his father years ago. While Mark tolerated Simon's sleeping around while he was alive, he won't have it now that he's dead.

Simon thinks he's ready to move on, but how can he with Mark interfering?

This film has an interesting premise and does touch upon some valid points but it is a bit lightweight and we don't care for the couple or their relationship as much as we should if this film is really to work.

If films were desserts this would be Jell-O, its colorful and not repulsive to the taste but it certainly leaves room for more. If you're in the mood for something more substantial, I suggest you try something else.
