One of the most controversial gay-themed films in recent years, this Brazilian romantic drama centers on the intimate bond between two half brothers. As children, Francisco and his younger brother Thomas, were best friends and unusually close to each other - so much so that their intimacy troubled outsiders. Fast-forward; the now strikingly handsome young men take their childhood intensity into a torrid relationship. But can their love survive society's discerning gaze?
Beautiful and Touching
- From Beginning to End review by JR
In some ways this is a very simple film. It is a love story, of a very beautiful , tender and loving relationship. It just happens to be between two men who are half brothers. If that offends you then best to avoid, if not you're in for a treat. The two leads are wonderful and totally believable in the roles. It is funny and sad and ultimately uplifting. I really enjoyed this very film. Hope you do too.
