What a terrific film that blurs the boundary between documentary and fiction - the director used nonprofessional actors for all but the two leads. A very moving love story that happens to be between two young men - probably the most touching I've seen in a while, mainly because it is subtle and mostly told through glances and gestures. This is not a film about gay culture - it's about two people living/working in a traditional farming community who are faced with a growing attraction to each other and do end up coming together. Luckily no great drama/punishment ensues a la Brokeback. The leads have amazing chemistry - kudos to the director for the casting. It's probably too slow for most tastes, but for me, it was perfect and if anything too short.
