Trivia

While shooting the scene in the art gallery, the film crew had to contend with an annoyed upstairs neighbor who protested the intrusion by stomping his feet on the floor. His persistent efforts resulted in minor damage to one of the pictures hanging on the wall. See more »

Goofs

It appears that within days of shaving his head Troy has a full head of hair again when he meets Jonathan to have a look at the the apartment. This is not a continuity error, the film's chronology is not linear. Even though the apartment scene is shown to us after the head shaving, in the film's timeline it took place before. See more »

Mundane LA queens trying to make a Bergman film.
25 September 2013 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

I can spot a bad movie within the first 5 minutes. Fortunately IMDb is here to confirm these suspicions. Even "good" reviews can tell you the movie is one you don't want to watch when you glimpse the concerns and logic of the people writing them.

I pulled the plug on this ersatz beautiful gay people "deep" relationship flic. A bunch of mundane queens trying to make a Bergman film. It just doesn't work it comes off as trite. The acting is bad the directing bad...the lines delivered one step above a wooden porno movie. Endless pregnant silences over how much sugar to put in your Latte.

I am not a great Bergman fan but at least the acting and movement rivet you to his movies....this movie reminded me of a bunch of routine LA queens thinking they are hot (they are not) world class yuppie somethings. Living in Barcelona (how classic!--the gay version of Florence) a yuppie gay tour de force.

PS I am gay so this is not a gay bashing critique quite the contrary. Maybe pseudo intellectual yuppie bashing.

Avoid avoid avoid.
