Storyline

Seven short films in which gay youths and young men negotiate society, sometimes successfully, sometimes not. In several, teen boys come out, perhaps first to a close friend - how will the friends react? For some youths, coming out risks violence. In two films, love is thwarted - by mother, in one, and by immigration, in another. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Overall disappointing
28 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

"Hitchcocked" is suspenseful! In this short, the heart warming romance quickly spirals down the drain, replaced with fear and suspense. I think "Hitchcocked" is fun and entertaining to watch. This has potential to be expanded to become a longer film.

"Summer" has a rather standard and formulaic plot, and it is not particularly engaging either. In fact, I found "Summer" rather boring. I have to point out though, the positivity of the ending is nice and certainly welcomed. It gives young people hope that things are not necessarily bad after coming out.

"Running Without Sound" does not have enough plot even to fill 13 minutes. The bedroom staring scene, though shows their hesitation and anxiety, is a little too long. Though it is refreshing to include a dumb character in a short, I think the subject is not so well handled.

"Oedipe - N+1" is a surprising gem. It has great production, trendy sets and an interesting plot. I am sure a lot of people can sympathise with Thomas' situation. This film is executed well, it engages me throughout the film. I am positively surprised by this short.
