Trivia

Drag Queen Cassy Carrington was originally planned to lip sync to the song "hope there's someone" by Antony & the Johnsons. The production company could not afford to license the famous track so they came up with "Poor wayfaring stranger" by Andreas Scholl. See more »

Goofs

Between 1:12 and 1:13, when Lukas is cleaning his room, you see the red "z" with it's dot above (like an upside-down question mark) on the balcony screen. When Fabio sits down on the window sill, the "z" has disappeared (only the dot stays), and it appears again afterwards. See more »

brave
27 August 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

...not only for delicate subject. But for delicate use of it. Because, scene by scene, it becomes a parable. Or just a poem. A young man. A relation. And a secret. Defining the others more than him. A film about a form of survive. And about the need to be yourself. And, sure, about the courage. It is not easy or fair to write about it. Because it is different and defined more by nuances. And, sure, because to see it is the basic way for discover the profound moving confession about yourself and the others and the borders betweem that. Short, a brave film. In so nuanced way.
