Can someone fail so utterly they actually succeed?
7 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Apparently yes as this movie plainly demonstrates. The intention of the filmmaker is obvious I think. As pointed out by several other reviewers, by inverting a situation where society - or rather the reactionary movement - condemns from a moral point of view a certain subculture, the film tries to establish the notion that morality - at least where sexual identity is concerned - is based upon a convention as arbitrary as the next. Which is smart. Unfortunately their chosen method to accomplish said goal is to present this fictional inverted world with all the ridicule they can master - and they do so admirably. I say unfortunately because ridicule is transfered back to the original institutions rather than validation been attributed to the subculture. So everything is invalid, tradition is ridiculous and, oh yeah, the subculture itself too - if it aspires to validation and recognition. And this argument finally transcends the rather dull debate of morality in sexually driven social institutions. I will go as far as saying that after this, every film created to promote homosexuality can officially be categorized as part of the reactionary movement too. Applause.
