What a beautfully intimate, sensitive, seductive, poignant film.
3 December 2018 | by Darko-MagickSee all my reviews

A Moment In The Reeds does build slowly, but truthfully I wouldn't want it any other way. It's all about the small moments.The emotional intensity between the two lead actors is great. Both giving completely natural, nuanced performances. Their shared chemistry on screen is captivating. This film has a lot more to offer than your typical erotic romance though. Both men are forced to confront issues in their lives that have long been ignored. Finland's beautiful countryside serves as a breathtaking backdrop to the emotional turmoil they're both going through. For fantasies unfortunately has to meet reality.

A Moment In The Reeds is an incredibly sensitive, seductive and poignant film. Impeccably directed with stunning cinematography and performances.
