Having played the role of Max in the original Broadway production of "Bent", Richard Gere was the original choice of the producers for the same role in the film, but having already contracted to appear in Red Corner (1997) and The Jackal (1997), he was unavailable for the shooting schedule of this movie.

Ok. I'll explain. Ok. We have to move rocks.
You move one rock at a time.
You take it over there.

This film, based on the theatrical production, is a moving and powerful experience. It is both emotional and intense and its power moves even a cynic to tears. While hope bounds throughout the hopeless scenario, the overwhelming feeling is desperation and despair.
Though the settings are largely historically inaccurate, they convey the mood of the era precisely.
A must see for anyone in the GLBT community or anyone with an interest in the Holocaust.
Never forget.....NEVER AGAIN!
