Lacks the Bite
5 September 2010 | by MasravSee all my reviews

A love story circling 2 brothers is a shocker enough in a sentence, let alone be a movie. The movie starts off by having a very subtle, poetic undertone to it. The music providing a very thorough atmosphere to accompany the viewers throughout. We are given layers upon layers in understanding the relationship of the young lovers, still concealed in the name of youth. As they age and the viewers are given a very visual and rather erotic embodiment of the relationship, it starts to feel as if the movie is too naive, too perfect for a taboo and sadly, it ends with a less than climatic conclusion. Expecting a total controversy in storyline, this movie lacks the bite it appears to have.
