Well acted in funny weird underground story
31 December 2016 | by asbn-26484See all my reviews

I liked this movie, not from the very beginning, but as the story evolves - french cute boy comes to Brooklyn and works in exchange for a place to sleep as barkeeper / dishwasher in the underground club Bizarre, - it becomes more and more emotionally dense. And erotic. And this is for me what the story is about: it leaves a lot for your imagination, it doesn't show all, the feelings of Maurice (main actor Pierre Prieur) as well as his motives and fears are just to imagine, as not spoken out. Isn't this what love and Eros is all about. Name it and it's gone. This is not an easy movie, although there are a lot of funny, weird, queer, drag queen scenes, which are seldom seen in bigger productions in such honesty and passion. Because this movie leaves the interpretation of the story and especially the (absolutely not predictable) end to the viewer. I love the movie, I love the actors, their beauty, their self- consciousness. And after I heard an interview with the director in Berlin (Teddy Awards), I also like him and his way of making underground movies. This is not an American gay movie, where everything is clear. This is great European (French) cinema. Its not about sex, its about Eros. If you like movies, where you have to think for yourself and don't get answers served on a silver tablet, watch this gem of a gay themed movie.
