The established relationship between university student Bruno and aspiring photographer Carla is thrown into turmoil when Bruno feels drawn to sexy karate instructor/break dancer Rai. Complications ensue.
Struggling martial artist and dancer Bruno loves his girlfriend Carla, but when he meets fellow dancer Rai, serious sparks begin to fly, opening the couple up to new possibilities. A new generation navigates sexual fluidity, torn affections, and open relationships in this steamy love triangle. But once Bruno's clandestine encounters with Rai are revealed, a confused and hurt Carla kicks him out. But she simply doesn't want to give up on her love. Eventually she agrees that Bruno can date them both as long as he keeps his life with Rai relatively separate.Written by
I recently saw this movie at a gay and lesbian film fest. The movie has good characters, is well filmed and had a great soundtrack. I was a bit annoyed that the sexual development of the main character Bruno, who has this amazing connection with another guy, and his subsequent "first gay interaction" is given so little attention. To me that was what the movie was about and it is passed over so trivially. There is great tension build up between them, longing glances, sexual moments and then this is all just passed over and we don't get to see how he experiences this earth shaking moment in his life when he gets to kiss or touch another man. It is left to our imagination, which I think is a bit of a cop out. The sex scenes between Bruno and his long term girlfriend are in comparison graphic. The movie could have done without the side characters of the girlfriends co- workers and concentrated a bit more the relationship between the two guys.Overall a nice movie, well acted, beautiful main character and nicely filmed
