Love - real love - between kindred spirits - heart-breaking and moving
8 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What an amazing film.

Two lonely lives touching each other and changing each other in a single encounter.

The low key direction and script by Mike Lemon are masterly. Bob Bowersox is soothingly gentle and focused throughout, even during David Duzenski's tirade. Duzenski is not only physically angelic but incredibly talented, totally believable in both his soft persona and his angry, tortured, guilt-ridden outburst.

Heart-breaking and unforgettable. Why isn't it on DVD? It's on Youtube, placed by someone from Poland, so I imagine it's available in Europe. Someone who puts together gay short film compilations should get their hands on this gem!
