Maria de Medeiros,
15 year old Tom is going to spend another calm summer with his parents and younger sister at their summer house. But by fate, another family comes to spend some time with them, with their 17 year old son Felix.
smart, beautiful, touching film. not only for story itself but for inspired manner to use different cultural pieces for a precise puzzle. humor, cultural impact, the family relationship, the identity of a foreign community and its circles. and , sure, the love story. after many homosexual movies, its basic virtue is its special freshness. not a lesson, not a speech about sexual minority rights. only a correct exercise about choice and tradition. and about the impact between worlds. last scene is splendid. and the Turkish bath scenes - full of delicate poetry. amusing, bitter, realistic. a good film. and little more.
