Trivia

There was not enough money left in the budget to re-shoot some scenes that turned out too dark. Had these scenes been with light in the film correctly exposed, the movie would have had another ending, although the story would have been basically the same. See more »

Two boys fall in love together
3 September 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Excellent movie, if you have an open mind. The two boy's relationship grows in a very innocent manner. Even if you are heterosexual, you can probably identify with the feeling of your first infatuation for another person and all the little moments together that seemed special. This movie deals with first love, of another kind, in an extremely tasteful manner. My only regret is that, in America, people will not tolerate movies like this one. It makes it very hard to hear of, and also see movies with such an explosive subject. I would recommend it, if you can find it.
