Trivia

Two lions in the sun goes from being fed up to a desperate social realism. We detect a tenderness in this wandering between two homosexual proletarians who decide to stop working and live their disenchantment without aggressiveness, discovering that fraud is no better than poverty. See more »

25 years later, concept still deeply affects me
27 March 2004 | by CountryJimSee all my reviews

I saw this when I lived in my country of birth, Australia. I was studying sociology, and was deeply into social class issues, especially around workers and the meaning of work.

Seeing how these two "heroes" sought to bring "some poetry" to their lives, and the ultimate consequence, was so universally sad and a comment on the human condition.

Now, living in Los Angeles, I see enormous social differentiation, and shallow movies that are all about things blowing up, and ever increasingly young and beautiful heroes.

Almost 25 years since I saw the film, I want to watch it again. I will update this comment with my new views of it.
