Tells the story of Francois van Heerden, a mid-40s, white, Afrikaans-speaking family man living in Bloemfontein, who has become devoid of any care or concern for his own measure of happiness, so convinced of his ill-fated existence, that he is wholly unprepared when a chance encounter unravels his clean, controlled life. Written by
Francois mentions that his friends have driven a long way to come to his daughter's wedding, all the way from Capetown, South Africa (to Bloemfontein, South Africa), and the distance is almost 1,500 kilometers. Actually, the distance is considerably less. Depending on which route is chosen, the driving distance from Cape Town to Bloemfontein is between 1,001 and 1,111 kilometers. See more »
I have been looking for a different gay movie where the main character doesn't kill himself or have an over sexual mother who kills herself etc... Or the depressing coming of a age gay movies that have been done a zillion times with all the disappointments and unrequited love to straights endless humiliations the straight girl who loves him who he has to tell the truth to on and on... This movie is it!
I have been to South Africa, Bloemfontein no less, and the scene where the Boer farmers engage in a little secret homosexual love party totally threw me.
A middle aged married man becomes infatuated with a pretty (Title) younger man eventually culminating in a hotel room where he beats him up to have his way instead of the stereotype where the reverse happens. GREAT.
This movie is unique and different...until the very end I was not sure what would happen as gay movies always have to end with some bad ending for the gay protagonist--not this one.
It reminded me a little of a Rod Steiger movie The Sargeant (1968) where Steiger falls in love with a junior army soldier--except Steiger has to commit suicide after coming on to the young recruit.
Times have changed for the better--
For the reviewer baffled by the swimming pool with debris and clothes in it...water is symbolic through out the movie...the rain after the gay bar pure water from the sky..the poetry reading...it symbolizes the id/sexual life of the hero---yucky icky water on the home front lots of hidden things lurking there.
