Touching examination of friendship and sexuality.
6 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Plan B is a captivating movie about feelings and the struggle to be honest, at least to yourself about them. An amazingly complex matter we all go through many, many times in life. Skillfully directed and edited by the Argentinean first timer Marco Berger, the film is an emotional statement of sexual confusion, artistically created by a team of young dedicated and intelligent friends. Two other amazing films comes to mind after watching this extraordinary work of art; Alexander Sokurov's Mother and Son and the young and talented Romanian Corneliu Porumboiu's Politist, Adjectiv.

This film is not for everyone, but bright heterosexual people will find it very honest and even valuable. You just do not know what will they do next and will question why are these two nice straight guys get it on? Because sexuality is complex by nature and societies made it even more difficult for them to express what they are feeling and Marco Berger knows that. It seems like the Kinsey Scale is hard at work in this film, where the numbers they belong is keep shifting, but as a spectator, never for a moment lost interest or joy in the beautifully composed scenes especially when they are at sleep or just standing and waiting for something to happen naturally. Your finger might be on the fast-forward side of the remote control, but if you are a true film lover "you will not! touch that button." The joy and artistry are coming from these long, beautiful and important takes and cuts. The film takes its time to let those feelings and expressions do the work, so we the audience get into the characters and almost feel their pain or joy.

One has to be very ambitious and a fanatic Tarkovsky fan to be able to make this stunning expressionist film and Marco Berger, I suspect, is both. I only recommend Plan B to hard- core film lovers and open-minded beautiful human beings, because the film will ask you to participate, will give you the space to be there with them and even examine your own feelings about this complex subject matters as sexuality, society and honesty.
