terrible
17 November 2002 | by Idefix-7See all my reviews

Basics of bad European gay cinema:

1) mediocre directorial abilities. 2) mediocre performances by a good looking cast. 3) horrible cinematography and tasteless framing. 4) anodyne art direction. 5) formulaic scripts that also attempt to be sordid and insightful. An unhappy contemplative ending is required.

I could go on but it doesn't deserve it. This film is a piece of trash. If you want to experience its big brother try Gus Van Sant's My Own Private Idaho. The Danish behind Pretty Boy obviously admires it.
