Standing at the brink of adulthood, he encounters a series of potential romantic interests - his handsome cousin, a schoolmate, a middle aged lawyer and finally a kitchen helper. They represent different stages in Eric's development, from infatuation, sex, love to a sense of responsibility. Written by Anon

Forgettable....
1 April 2007 | by temp2-7See all my reviews

I just watched this movie, and since it's so forgettable, I will only remember that it's bad unless I write a comment right now.

This movie summarizes what's disappointing in most indie gay flicks: Wooden acting, trite dialog, predictability, saccharine treatments, lack of creativity/character development and a movie that lacks rhythm.

Eric treats each scene with the same manner of dialog and acting. Lack of close ups force the script to convey the emotion rather than the expressiveness of the characters. The script and its delivery are sub par.

Since Eric is kind of attractive, it was the only thing that kept me watching to the end. To me this movie is just another pedestrian gay movie that is necessary on the path to much better ones.
