Love makes the world go round. At least that's what Marcel and Kyle believe, until they suddenly discover that love can alternatively flip the world upside-down. When certain elements are set into motion, they tend to stay in motion. If tampered with, they can spin out of control. Marcel and Kyle are in love at first sight, and even though they can't legally marry, they will find a way to make it work. French Marcel marries their lesbian friend Sarah so he can stay in the USA with Kyle. Together they can overcome any obstacle, hurdle any barrier. Together they cannot be stopped. Enter Kyle's sister April, a former prostitute. She needs a place to crash, but for how long? Taking a quick dislike to Marcel, April methodically drips poison into their happiness.

Story about a hot American guy named Kyle (Simon Miller) falling for hot French guy Marcel (Justin Tensen). They fall in love but Marcel has to fake a marriage with lesbian Sarah (Jane Elliott) to stay in the country. Then Kyle's sister April (Rob Harmon) gets thrown out of her apartment and asks to stay with Kyle and Marcel. She hates Marcel and he hates her and she decides to get them to break up. This all leads to tragedy.
Writer/director Casper Andreas has done two previous films before this that I saw--"Slutty Summer" and "Four Letter Word". They were funny well-made and had unrealistically happy endings. This is a strong drama with no humor and a very depressing but realistic ending. Some people think this was overdone and TOO strong...but I thunk that was the idea. Love isn't always beautiful and wonderful. It hurts and can wound you and this movie goes out to show that. Also this has some beautiful erotic moments with Miller and Tensen nude in bed and making love. There's only a few shots of full frontal and the sex is obviously being faked, but the two men are handsome and have great bodies and are great to watch. There is also some good songs sung by Miller that comment on the action. The low budget does show but Andreas is a very good director and makes it work. The script is tight and vicious but realistic. Miller is great in his role and Elliott is lots of fun as Sarah. On the bad side Harmon is a bit TOO vicious and one-dimensional in his role and Tensen isn't as good as Miller. Still I recommend it but it is sad and depressing.
