Storyline

Four short films explore love, growth, and pain in intimate relationships between men. In "Death in Venice, CA," a stressed-out academic succumbs to the temptations of his landlady's 17-year old step-son. "Achilles" tells the story of Achilles and Patroclus during the siege of Troy. Pride costs Achilles the love of his life. In "My Polish Waiter," a chatty young man, Timith, pushes himself upon Belky, a nearly-wordless immigrant waiter. After they become lovers, Timith sees beyond himself to Belky's happiness. In "Miguel, Ma Belle," a needy, HIV-positive young man gets a dog as a gift when he's jilted. Through the dog, the young man, Miguel, becomes master of himself. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Love between two generations

This reinterpretation of Death in Venice is a must. Too short though, well... it is a short movie as one should know. All the actors are perfect. Every detail counts (action taking place in Venice CA) and allusions to the famous movie -a delight to spot out - are everywhere in the plot, the set, the charactors, etc. A real pleasure.
