Storyline

Sweat is the story of an afternoon of debauchery and intrigue as Simon takes leave of his senses and heads for a sauna. Negotiating the humiliating locker room strip where he inadvertently injures a fellow punter, he forges his first impromptu introduction to a handsome man called Tim. Nerves prohibit normal conversation as they share an empty sauna and both of the attractive men shy in each other's presence. Later, Simon encounters an opportunistic rent boy called Tiger and is amazed that at seventeen, he seems to have learned more about sex than Simon has in all his twenty-five years. Further into his journey, an experiment with poppers and some very public sexual displays, leave him wondering what he came for, and possibly leaving none the wiser, albeit with a phone number and a wry smile. Written by John Lochland

initiation
12 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

a film seductive for the cultural references. and for a good choice for the lead role. because, not the sexual connotations are the axis of the presence of a shy young man in sauna but the dialogues, revelations, confessions, meets, discoveries, the trip in a bizarre universe who reminds Dante Divina Commedia , Kafka and his short stories or The Castle, Expressionism and Bunuel. "Sweat" is one of films who seduce for the desire of a part of public to see more than a blank story about a boy lost in a dark world. and, maybe, this desire, represents the basic virtue of a film like many others who has the science to be so simple than becomes perfect white page for create few ornaments, significance and meanings.
