Storyline

Have you ever met someone who made your body heat up, get a little nervous and sweaty, and made your crotch stir a bit? Sexual Tension: Volatile will reignite those lustful feelings as it weaves six scintillating experiences of men in various stages of nudity and many forms of erotic male bonding. A pulsating, sexually-charged thrill ride, the film begins as a young man feels the adrenaline rush of his sexy tattooist's needle in "Ari" while in "The Cousin," a geeky, cute boy finds a hot Summer afternoon triggering his taboo desire for his Speedo-clad cousin. Two straight buddies literally show each other how to make love to a woman in "The Other One," while a man with 'Broken Arms' receives a sensual sponge bath from a male nurse. "Love" is questionable when a broken shower brings a married man and a hairy, innkeeper together when they least expect it and in "Workout" two muscular men, 'sexting' pictures to some hot chicks, begin to shed their clothes and inhibitions. Argentinian ... Written by TLA Releasing

Too close for comfort? Six shorts, two directors, 12 men in close quarters
4 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All six of these short films show what happens when two men, presumably straight but not necessarily, get close up, then closer, in intimate situations. Sexual tension. A volatile atmosphere. One gets a tattoo, another bunks with a cousin of his friend, one meets, yes, a handyman. Very talented young directors, Marcelo Monaco and Marco Berger take the interactions just a bit further than perhaps any of the men expect or want. Some of these are witty and fun. Others more serious. All quite tense for the viewer. I think that the best part is the way they play with the viewer's mind and expectations. Good homoerotica is not necessarily all bells and whistles, if you get my drift. Berger is the writer and director of Plan B, a very successful feature that has many of the same qualities. Two men meet and find a more intense connection than they expected. Both film makers are masters of the pregnant pause, the unspoken word, the subtle non-verbal signal, the awkward silence. Both directors are great photographers and compose their slow dances of intimacy in a very beautiful and satisfying way. For those looking for explicit sex, go elsewhere. For those who like the unconscious seduction, the slow revelation of feelings and, eventually, some nice outcomes, be patient. Enjoy the process. Each of these shorts will be pleasing and satisfying in their own way. Some more than others but all are worth watching all the way through. Maybe twice over.
