Storyline

Tom is a young man with AIDS living in London with his lover Ira. The disease has exaggerated Toms nervous energy and in his manic state he suddenly decides to go to Glasgow to visit the family he hasn't seen in ten years. His brother Ian is thoroughly disgusted by his lifestyle and only his mother shows any compassion for him. The visit soon develops into a nightmare as dementia sets in and Tom's health rapidly declines. Finally, events come to a head and Ira has no choice but to force Tom back to London, where he expects him to die at any time. After treatment, Tom gets a brief reprieve, having discovered that his real family is his adopted one in London. Written by Anonymous

Road to death
23 July 2003 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Once you've finished of seeing the entire movie, you're close of acquiring a clue on life itself. Have you ever felt powerless, angered but frightened to death at the same time?

Look at this one tragic example trough the x-ray of Tom Kelso, deeply characterized by Cal Macaninch, who happens to be a man, at that time we discover he is gay, who has known the variety of feelings that our wild world give to ourselves: the anguish of being left of side by the near and the complex process of taking distance and to move away to find new horizons of life.

But to the young Tom is difficult to read the signals when all crumbles down around him. In the end he infects himself of AIDS and simultaneously he's abandoned again.

Now meet Ira Moss -fabulously interpreted by Alfred Molina-, and join our trip to the endless battle against sickness. To find out how it finishes, you've got to trust: Love conquers all.

I highly recommend you to see this movie. Enjoy yourself!
