a lot of virtues
31 October 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

first, it is a delicate time travel. because, from the musicals of 1950 to Tom of Finland, everything seems be present. it is a pure gay movie, remembering Querelle atmosphere. in same measure, it is the right story about dreams, fantasies, gifts, ideals and sweet poetry. so, a great show. not only for the green screen, for the scene on the beach or for music but for admirable performances. a sort of fairy tale. and, no doubt, a film preserving the flavor of a noble feeling, unique state of soul and fine definition of illusion. so, real good.
