Trivia

Bernardo's emotional final scene with his grandmother was caught in the first take. Director Miguel Albaledejo asked his young actor David Castillo to do a second take because a fly was buzzing around in the background but Castille refused as he was so emotionally drained by the scene. The fly was removed digitally. See more »

Quotes

Bernardo: I don't want to leave you alone.

Gay man takes responsibility for his nephew's care.
30 August 2006 | by rander4See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to see a sold-out showing of this movie during the Rochester Image Out Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, and I recently watched it again on DVD. It is a moving story of a defiantly single gay man who becomes the guardian of his nephew. His apprehension at taking care of his nephew dissolves when he is forced to make some difficult choices. There are many tender moments in the film, and it is surprisingly funny. Some of the content has been edited for the DVD, but most of the cut scenes are included as extras. One of the aspects that should be mentioned is that the lead character and his friends are part of the gay sub-culture known as "bears." This group represents many of the gay men who do not fit into the gay image that is often presented in film. No one is young, thin, and without facial hair except for the nephew, sister, and grandmother. The movie provides a frank and honest view of the bear community, as well as a realistic portrayal of defining a family under unusual circumstances.
