Company: IMCINE, Las Naves Pro.
Release Year: 2007

Honestly, until now I still can’t fully understand the whole movie in details. However, different with the case of Pres Que Rien. I can’t undersatnd this movie in detail is not because the complicated story of the movie but the unfocused of the main story of the movie. At the beginning, I expect much to this movie after seeing the poster of the movie but then I am little bit disappointed with the movie after watching it. Okay, when I saw the poster like the picture above, I thought that this movie is about triangle love among three guys, but in fact that’s all wrong. The story of the movie was not centered on that kind of theme. Get confused? Me too.
Fortunately, at the beginning of the movie, I was really excited watching this movie. The reason is that the story at beginning focused on the story among the three man but of course not love story. Anyway, i won’t tell the detail story of the movie. Okay, let’s continued, but then after a while everything goes to unfocused which ruined my interest to watch this movie without using FFWD button. Fortunately, there was Irene Azuela on the screen. She was magnetic on screen. She was incredible in that movie.

This is the first brave movie which I’ve already watched. Why I said like that is because this movie presented such sensitive story. Get curious? Okay, I will give you some clues about this movie. Perhaps, when you saw the picture above, you will think that this is cliche gay movie, but sorry you are wrong. It’s not just about that. Okay, basically, the story of the movie was about the special love story between two gay men, but behind that cliche story, there is something controversy.
I really enjoy watching this movie, and even I can say that this is one of my favorite gay movie. This movie was beautifully shot and scored and with fine acting throughout given tha nature of the narrative. It is remarkable poetic and stunning. The dialogues were polished. The movie was fearless and daring in many ways as it touches on every some very taboo subject matters.
The best part of the movie was the stunning performance of the casts. The casts make for lush eye-candy, goes without saying, a fact not lust on their artistic love making and erotic dance sequences. So that’s all from me about this movie. So, if you want to find out what kind of subject matter this movie is about, just watch it.
1.All You Need Is Love
Meine Schwiegertochter ist ein Mann
Director: Edzard Onneken
Writers: Kerstin Österlin, Jessica Schellack
Release Year: 2009
Runtime: 90 min
Cast: Saskia Vester, Jürgen Tonkel, Jenny Elvers, Andreas Helgi Schmid, Manuel Witting
Just like what I expected before dowonload and watch this movie, this movie was totally fun to be watched. Yeah, of course, this movie was categorized as comedy romance gay movie. Okay, actually the theme of the movie can be categorized as serious subject which usually happened in a love relationship. The story was about Hans who wanted to marry Nicki in his hoemtown in the mountain town. Unfortunately, things got complicated because Hans didn’t tell his mom that he will marry a man not a woman. Then the story was centered on the journey of Hans and Nicki to make Hans’ dream comes true. But after a while living there, finally Hans give his final decision, and what’s that? Just watch the movie.
It’s sincere well acted, touching and funny, and it communicate the right message. The gay characters are not just a walking collection of stereotypes. Totally different gay movie, so heart wrenching narrative in fun type of script and execution. Guess what, this is the first time I watched gay movie because of the leading cast. Yeah the leading cast as Hans is really handsome. He was totally gorgeous.
Broderskab – Fratellanza
Director: Nicolo Donato
Writers: Rasmus Birch, Nicolo Donato
Companies: Asta Film, Film Fyn, Olive Films
Release Year: 2009
Runtime: 96 min
Cast: Thure Lindhardt, David Dencik, Nicolas Bro
At the beginning, I expected much with this movie after watching the trailer, but after watching the whole movie, I am little bit disappointed download this movie. It’s little bit boring and daring. At the beginning of the movie, it just talked about the brotherhood communion. Fortunately, after waiting patiently, I’ve got something interesting from this movie. Just like the picture above, the leading casts which are the members of the brotherhood communion fall in love ech other, but since their communion really hate gay then they hide their love relationship. But then, after something happened, other members knew their relationship which makes them in trouble. What makes it worst is the fact that the one who reveal their secret is the brother of the leading cast.
The script really moves right to the point. Thure Lindhart as lars deliveres an equally external and internal performances, totally brilliant. The best thing of the movie is that true love seldom runs smoothly.
