Out of this world must have indie Gem!
25 September 2006 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

I coincidentally came across this beauty while creating my long list of gay themed movies on my Blockbuster online club back when I used to live in the States. I added it as I did with all the other titles I hadn't heard of. Awesome Surprise. The beauty of the dialogs, the angst expressed through the characters' silence and attitudes (i remember feeling like that myself), the music, the poems....Oh! Those poems! I watched it 4 times before I returned it and ran to buy it online! Had to have it! Recommended to all movie lovers who are just tired of the conventional image of homosexuality portrayed by all those big studio films. Congratulations to all involved in the production of this amazing piece of work!
