Matias and Jeronimo have known each other since childhood, but their friendship took a new turn during the holiday before starting high school when they both sexually awoke together.

More than ten years later, Matias returns to his old town for carnival with his girlfriend and unexpectedly runs into Jeronimo. Feelings will slowly reappear and will reach a climax, but at what price? Written by Outplay Films

Sweet love story about childhood friendship
23 February 2019 | by MystiqueAurorsSee all my reviews

Esteros is a coming-out-terms movie about a childhood friends who attracted to each other.

Matias and Jeronimo are kids who the parents friend with each other. They both are inseparable since then. Eventually they started attracted to each other as kids but unfortunately Matias's family must go to Brazil because of the job and leaving their hometown and Jeronimo.

Many years passed, Matias back to the town but he had girlfriend. Fate coming to rescue, they reunited again not knowing it beforehand and all the feeling to each other resurface.

You will see both of them trying to nostalgia the time and place when they were kids, but you also seeing the struggle from both of them. From Mati who always tries to throw away and forget whatever he felt toward his friend and Jero tries to show a hint to his friend what he felt because he's been patiently waited over the decade.

I love and I think it's sweet how Jero still do and remembering what they always do together as kids. But get frustated when found out Mati always tries to forget and remove Jero whenever he tell his girlfriend about his childhood life. But I know the reason why he doing that though.

The estuaries is beautiful, quite and relaxing. A place like that is needed nowadays. I like it.
