Storyline

A young Jewish girl looking to escape the clutches of the Third Reich after seeing her parents and sister brutally slain while attempting to make their way to England is sheltered by an old friend whose status as a member of the "third" sex soon leads the Gestapo pounding on his door as well. Betrayed by a smuggler who sat idly by as her family was casually slaughtered by the SS, terrified Sara flees into the comforting care of childhood summer-vacation chum Jean and his faithful lover Philippe. Though safe for the moment thanks to Jean's quick-thinking plan to pass her off as a Gallic employee of his family's laundry business, Sara watches in horror as her homosexual protector is forced into a Nazi labor camp as a tragic result of a bad decision made by Jean's troublesome brother Jacques. Written by anon.

Why no distributor
21 October 2006 | by bobla941See all my reviews

Other reviewers have shared their experience with this amazing movie. I saw it in July at the Outfest film festival in LA. What I don't understand is why this film has never been distributed in the US? In will shortly be available on DVD, so at least it won't disappear. But it should be seen as widely as possible, if not in theaters, at least on TV.

Perhaps a letter writing campaign to HBO or Showtime? Or to Here TV or to Logo? It would be a challenging movie for audiences, but the quality of the film alone should draw people to see the film. I also find it curious and sad that nearly all of my favorite gay-themed movies are European. It seems that the US film industry has great difficulty making this type of film, even with heterosexual themes.
