Storyline

Harry is a 23-year-old former boy band idol who is watching his younger brother Max, 16, follow in his footsteps. Harry has detoured on his way to a Japanese concert tour to escort Max on a long-promised camping adventure. Their trip begins on a note of camaraderie but quickly turns serious as old wounds resurface, forcing them to come to terms with their dysfunctional past--Harry's drinking problems, his disconnection from the family, and, most of all, his relationship with Max and the emotional dependency that keeps them from moving into adulthood. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Artsy, different, controversial... I liked it.
30 April 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I bought this film on DVD a while back through recommendation from a friend and I was as unwilling as anyone to watch a film that was known because two brothers "get it on"... I study psychology and one of the main (and more unpleasant) topics is incest and in 75% of sibling incest cases, mutual consent is given (meaning both siblings wanted it and one did not force it upon the other). On first hearing this I was curious as to why; most of the time when you think of incest you think of backward trailer trash states in America (or story lines from soap operas) but this film does kind of open your eyes a little bit to that kind of thing. The relationship between Harry and Max isn't shown as disgusting or immoral and you end up sort of understanding why they do get it on. My idea was that it was due to uncaring parents who live through their kids and being in a business that is notably full of fake people. Through this, the brothers seem to learn that the only people they can fully trust is each other. Obviously this is no reason to start boinking so other stuff must come into it but yeah I still obviously don't condone incest but this film kind of makes you understand mutual incest. I recommend giving it a try, you won't be too disgusted since the only thing you really see between the brothers is two kisses and a badly simulated oral sex scene but hey, at least you don't see anything to be too grossed out by. Some people pass this off as a gross film for people who get off on that kind of thing but I disagree. Just give it a try. I don't think you'll regret it.
