A piano student (Kevin Bishop) meets his idol, a successful concert pianist (Paul Rhys). Rhys seduces him and they begin sleeping together. The student is falling in love...but with the wrong guy.
A not too bad story. Bishop is a very attractive young actor. He's very good in some scenes and has a couple of very nice nude scenes. Rhys is is also good. But this movie does have problems.
Juliet Stevenson plays Kevin's mother and she's WAY over the top. She plays every single scene in a wide-eyed hysterical manner. Sometimes it fits--other times it really annoying (and laughable). She has a fairly large role in the film and unfortunately drags it down.
Also, the story is very sketchy about Kevin and his attraction to men. He is gay but you're never quite sure why he's with certain guys. Also there's a very unpleasant scene between him and an older gay man.
Still, it's well-done on a very low budget, has beautiful music, some good acting and is reasonably interesting. A little sad also but truthful. Worth catching.
