Storyline

Lawrence Jefferies is a guy who's found the flow in his life; he knows how to trust his gut and follow his instincts. Driven by a loving curiosity and strong sense of adventure, he lives his life with a freedom and confidence most men envy. Hugh Greerey, by contrast, lives under the influence of his self-consciousness, struggling to connect to a deeper sense of who he really is. There is a power and intensity to Hugh's spirit which he fights to hold in check until the two meet by happenstance and a defining moment between them opens one into his humanity and propels the other into his soul. Written by Bridget O'Rourke

A work of art and a message: be open to doubt !
26 October 2009 | by (Montréal, Canada) – See all my reviews

This amazingly beautiful movie offers to the viewer a frontal collision against the unknown; something, which should not have happened, has happened. Two men have listened to the call of beauty, the beauty of another person, the beauty of this other person's desire. As they comment, two men are discovering something in them. A new emotion... rejected or accepted, mistrusted or recognized. It demonstrates with mastery that a true humanitarian value is to keep open to one's own pulsation. That life is a synonym of chance, of lack of certitudes. To give attention to the possibility of discovering new feelings is a key to existence and probably a case against violence. Actors and the direction are all very gifted. There is also quite an effective hint of subdued eroticism. Should be compulsory duty for straight people to see it, and a reward, like a "bonbon", to the others. Héhé.
