Dull and cheesy film about coming out of the closet
21 February 2017 | by PeniLeinSee all my reviews

I've seen this movie at a Gay Film Festival, and it was probably the less attractive of the six movies that I saw there (and the other five were not masterpieces but regular movies, so...).

The Script by Andy Nachon is interesting, but Director Papu Curotto did not achieve much with it. Most of the time, you feel like you are watching a Hallmark Channel TV Movie about "the importance of accepting love no matter what form it takes" -something quite cliché a decade after 'Water Lilies' and tons of similar films, and 25 years after 'Fucking Amal', 'In & Out', 'Emporte-moi', 'The Crying Game', 'Fresa y chocolate', ...). The freshness and realism provided by the Script is lost through the stiff and artificial aesthetic of Directing. The talent of Actors is wasted, amazing landscape is overused like in a kitsch tourism promotional video, the same happens with exposition flashbacks like in a trash romantic movie from the 80's, and the abuse of background songs is just ridiculous.

Work of Cinematographer and children Actors performance stand out.
