An unusual love story with a 'Green card' winning ticket
don't believe it, this is one really very good and watchable film. it is sensitively done and tells an interesting story between two guys Kyle and Marcel. lots of men kissing each other and having sex together, lots of lesbian contact also but its not a porno movie. Kyle's sister April plays a key role in the movie as a prostitute and moves in with kyle and marcel. the film is realistic in dealing with emotions and situations. I am straight, so cant comment on the gay side of things but this film arouses a lot of curiosity. the green card element of the story and which reaches a suspense-full ending is well thought through, the film is budget but it works. wont win any major awards and the acting is average at best (except for the guy playing marcel. the script is good but you do need to concentrate, no toilet breaks if you don't press the pause button!
