In spite of their differences, a close friendship begins to emerge between the two men. However, their bond of trust and admiration soon spirals downward into a dangerous game of deceit and obsession for which neither is prepared. Written by Attitude Films

User Reviews

A tasteful and intriguing cinematic 'plat du jour'.
5 August 2001 | by merridonSee all my reviews

This film move than lived up to my expectations. It was stylish, clever, engrossing and, above all, entertaining. The story is well constructed and draws you in to the point of actually CARING what happens to the two main characters (a rarity nowadays). The relationship between the dual male protagonists is an enigma. Is it based on power?...On love?...On need?..On desire?...On sex? We are kept guessing and, even after the film is over, these questions still linger in our mind and are never totally resolved. For me, THAT is the mark of a successful film---one that entertains AND makes you think. I highly recommend "A Matter Of Taste" if you share the same criteria.
