    Saw this "controversial" Brazilian film about gay love between two brothers over the weekend at the Verzaubert (Enchanted) Film Festival in Frankfurt.

    Very attractive young lovers, the kids' acting was fantastic. The fact that they were brothers was nearly a non-issue. A refreshing perspective, but didn't leave much room for dramatic elements. Basically a very simple love story, where the two lovers happen to be men and happen to be brothers.

    Entertaining but also forgettable.

    You say it as if it would appeal to you if it were 'regular incest.'

    been hearing about this for about a year now, waiting for it to hit festivals here. although the incest angle sort of overshadow's the gay aspect still very much into checking it as the acting seems on point - most gay-themed movies that make it stateside have terrible actors.

    Thanks A1EX lol duh! I'm so stupid I thought you meant you watched it from the beginning to end hahaha

    But i watched that trailer, it looks really good, I'll have to find it when it's on dvd. I'm glad it's not solely about the brothers having sex issue, it would get in the way of the story. I love these types of love stories that's like a narrative into someone's life rather than a movie that's the end all of itself 'cos I can watch them over and over without getting bored of them (like The Mistress with Asia Argento).

    Controversial storyline for sure, but the trailer looks compelling. Is it out yet?

    adds new meaning to the word "bromance."

    a little disturbing that they are trying to make some kind of statement. maybe the road to acceptance of homosexuality isn't through ambiguous fraternal relationships....joe baptist (or pedro baptist, in this case), won't likely warm up to the gay issue with a film like this.
