Storyline

In the carefree pre-AIDS late 1970s, Philip (Gregory Phelan) crosses paths with Guy (Kevin Spirtas) at a yard sale in a minor tussle over a green plaid shirt which turns into a deep and loving relationship, and a powerful journey through life, love, coping with the new disease of AIDS, and then death. They agree to have an open relationship, and they have outside dalliances, even while Philip realizes he's less into being open than Guy is. When Guy contracts AIDS, the relationship takes some tragic and unexpected turns. Written by trivwhiz

Really, really, really, really bad.
24 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was going to say this was the worst gay-themed film I've ever seen, but I can honestly say this is the worst film if any genre I've ever seen.

You know you're in trouble when a movie starts with a "personal note" from the Director, asking for the audience's "understanding" for the "many challenges" facing a first-time Director. The audio track is so bad in many scenes it's almost impossible to follow the dialogue, and this from a DVD version. Bad lighting, bad sets, bad photography, poor script, generally bad acting all add up to make this "film" unwatchable. I did make it through to the bad ending after several attempts, and immediately gave away the DVD I foolishly purchased. I'm sure there are many challenges facing a first-time Director. But, don't try to palm off this lame attempt as a finished product. I see from IMDb details that this was not only the first Directing attempt of Richard Natale, but also the only. That's the one positive thing I can say about this alleged "movie".
