only a tryst
10 April 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

two young men. a beach. a summer house. and profound change of life for one of them. nothing special. maybe a parable or a Coelho story. but, it is only a short movie. seductive, shining, wise. at many short films. strange, it is a gay story but not about sexual options. its subject is the choice who defines life. courage/ occasion to discover yourself. art of joy. and desire to build your new beginning. the first scenes and the last are extraordinaries. Paul Dawson and John Sloan does touching roles, in fact pieces of way to be free out of world expectations. it is something magic in this film. and necessary. like a wake up. or, only, like a meeting as seed.
