Storyline

In the suburbs of Buenos Aires, Gabriel has just moved in with his colleague, Juan. Shy and reserved, Gabo is reluctant to follow Juan's wandering hands and meaningful looks. With a revolving door of beauties streaming out of Juan's bedroom, his machismo seems firmly in place. However, the attraction between the two men is undeniable. What starts out as a sexual relationship based on convenience of location, soon develops into the engrossing evolution of a tender and intimate relationship, which is as sweet as it is heartbreaking.

Hot in the closet
27 May 2019 | by chong_anSee all my reviews

In Argentina, when one man invites a co-worker ("the blonde one") to live in a spare room in his apartment, things surprisingly get hot and steamy. But the closeted one want things to otherwise stay the same, unwilling to come out to his friends, who repeatedly visit unannounced, creating a form of coitus interruptus.

I saw this at the Inside Out LGBT film festival, where I'm sure some members of the audience appreciated the attractive leads, action, and nudity. However, the clunky dialogue (as represented by the subtitles) means that this film is likely appealing only to a select audience.
