Storyline

Armando, a middle-aged owner of a Caracas dental prosthesis business, is estranged from his father, who he observes occasionally from a distance. He finds a young man of the streets who negotiates a fee high enough for the boy to be used to provide Armando's masturbatory object. Although a following encounter ends in a beating for Armando, he continues to make the boy dependent. What is the final result that Armando desires? Is it something more than a conflicted relationship with a hustler? Written by tgkohn

From Afar
28 March 2016 | by Elliot DukeSee all my reviews

I am not going to describe the plot of the film as you have read that in other reviews and in the film synopsis. This film was recently shown in London and I really wonder who writes the reviews for such movies or even worse who are the bodies who give them prices in some festivals...It was a disaster, the audience was packed and in the first 40 minutes within the movie I noticed people leaving the auditorium. I was feeling the same but I was in a middle place so I decided to endure. They did have a good plot for a film but there was no script, all monosyllabic interventions and the worst of silence in movies is NO MUSIC. How important to have some back music to enhance a silence. But silence, no dialogues and no music all the time, becomes soporific. Literally at times it felt that I was watching a security camera recording. There was no acting, apart from the face expressions of the main characters in certain scenes, well difficult to act if you have nothing to say most of the time...The message in that movie could have been better portrayed: a sad middle age gay man confused and frustrated with his own life and the way he dealt with his sexual desires, together with young men desperate to make a living in a horrid "machista" society with no hopes for a better financial future. From a technical point of view the camera angles and the focus did not work as intended, you can sense that if you are familiar with the technicalities of movie making. Whoever was in charge of the camera did a LOUSY job. I would not recommend it, but is a clear example of a BAD MOVIE, which will only be remembered, if, for the punishment caused to viewers.
