Storyline

Its the 1960s at the University of Toronto. Doug is a well-liked senior with an equally popular girlfriend. Peter is a shy freshman, and new to the big city. Peter and Doug become best friends and soon start going to concerts, drinking, and playing in the snow together. When Doug brings Peter to a steam bath and washes his back, the friendship seems headed to a whole new level, at least in Doug's mind. But when Peter emerges from a party after having sex with a co-ed, things get even more complicated... Written by Havan Ironoak <Havan_Ironoak@bigfoot.com>

Amateur Effort
2 July 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This film was shot at Sir Daniel Wilson Residence at the University of Toronto with a cast of amateur actors. I was at Sir Dan's at the time: most of us trooped out to see it later in the year - and were rewarded with a couple of nude scenes that were mildly titillating then and would be positively tepid today. The movie is being flagged under headings like "gay interest" and "shower scene" - and it's noted that it was screened at Cannes. For all these reasons, it may have a modest degree of sociological/political/cultural interest. But be in no doubt: this is an amateur effort. I found the script painfully naive when I viewed the film 40 years ago - and it must be a profound embarrassment today. Not worth your time unless you're into the history of Canadian cinema.
