I usually find most gay cinema quite horrible - the writing, the casting, the acting, the directing. This film however was truly remarkable. Yes it is long and moves slowly, but it captivated me the entire way through. I was intrigued. I felt like I was watching an old movie from the silent ere. And I was very thankful that it was not some predictable-tack-on-a-resolution ending. I have a difficult time calling this a gay film. Yes, I know it's all about love and relationships between guys. But the story just as easily could have been about a man and a woman I think. It's really just a story about life, love and tragedy. How does one continue living with a broken heart? Very little dialog, but the film speaks volumes.
