A beautifully written film
10 March 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie depicts the very essence of a man's first exposure to gay culture in the heart of rural Brazil, where cowboys are as tough as they get. The main character Govinda (Govinda Machado de-Figuerirod) is a young, handsomely strapping cowboy who finds that there are many meanings to the word love and discovers sexual confusion after his first gay sexual experience while visiting the city with his best friend.

The cinematography is outstanding using beautiful locations to enhances this cleverly made film by giving the audience a graphical look at cowboy culture, how they live and how they interact with each other in Brazil. It is a narrative film, with intermingled dialogue throughout that feels unscripted; a documentary style production.

The narration (told in the voice of the main character) although good, is not convincingly of Brazilian origin, but sounds more of a European accent which can be distracting. The dialogue in the film is true and not contrived, and the relationship between Govinda and Jones seems very real and plausible. There are no gratuitous graphic sexual scenes in this film that depict Govinda's feelings for his friend Jones, but instead, these feeling of affection for Jones are subtle and sensitive in expression which is effective enough throughout the film to give the audience a sense of identity and connection with the character.

The movie is pure, with a message that is very common in all societies of life: that coming to terms with a person's sexuality is filled with confusion, fear and acceptance. A must see short film.
