This teenager's divergence from his budding sexuality is remarkable
18 October 2013 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

This evening, I had the pleasure of viewing Marçal Forés' film 'Animals'. It was a small affair, well off Austin's beaten track but what a spectacular introduction to Polari (formerly AGLIFF – Austin Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival). Introduced as one of the fest's darker offerings and having seen a tense little trailer that leaned toward the surreal, I was all set for a wanna-be horror film with some fantastic visuals and very little substance. About the visuals, I was spot on. Shot in a small, affluent community in Northern Spain, there is a dusky beauty to the image and a dreamy tone but the surreal is treated with such matter-of-fact confidence that I was reminded of the iconic Chris Cunningham. Concerning substance, 'Animals' engages with a uncanny sense of emotional logic expressed through a young man's (Oriol Pla) emotional attachment to his childhood teddy bear – who happens to talk (in HAL-like monotone) and walk about of its own accord. If this sounds a bit like the movie 'Ted', you're way off the mark. This isn't heady art – there's still a sense of humor throughout – but the angle the filmmakers have taken to express this teenager's divergence from his budding sexuality is remarkable. The only point of reference I could give would be 'Donnie Darko', but 'Animals' isn't nearly as indulgent of Science Fiction or fantasy. Of 'Gay Cinema', let me just say that there are good films and there are bad films and the sexual orientation of the filmmakers, cast, and crew is insubstantial to me. 'Animals' is a profoundly good film and I hope if finds an audience when it's released on DVD in November.
