Awful production of a bad story
15 February 2006 | by yadgiriSee all my reviews

The movie attempts to catalog the hardships of a homosexual boy having to cope with his father's expectations of being an Alpha male. While this subject itself could've been portrayed in a much more interesting manner the makers of this absurdity chose to play it more or less as a Mexican soap opera. Acting quality is for the most part horrendous and the production isn't far behind. Five minutes into the movie you begin wondering if its worth watching the rest and by the end, if you last that long, you'll have wasted 2 perfectly good hours you could've spent doing more constructive work.. like watch paint dry. What will keep you mildly amused though are the borderline nonsensical subtitles. Somebody needs to teach them punctuation and maybe donate a dictionary while they're at it.
