honest, brutal, courageous, empathetic and German
11 May 2007 | by (Germany, Berlin) – See all my reviews

Hi there,

let me briefly tell all of you, that I loved that film. You'll love it,too. I, as a cineast, have always been wondering why gay issued-films became so incredibly boring. Watching "Solange Du hier bist", i found an answer: Because they don't face reality and suffocated in sort of post 80ies trial of breaking taboos, that are not longer existent. Or they obviously just try to tear the money out of the audiences pockets with offering cheap and "pseudo-sexy" stories. "Solange Du hier bist!" doesn't either do the first nor the second. This film seems to have broken a new taboo, confronting the (gay) audience with (their) absolute and personal reality! Honest, brutal, courageous, empathetic!I am sure that might be disturbing for some, but it's a revolution in a way... This film shows individual life, and suddenly puts the word -cinema- above the brand -gay movies-. Congrats...

TO Stampa Rosa: Don't worry about Torino. Maybe you'll win next time!
