Some people would find this movie boring, slow, disgusting, irrelevant, or so, but it's not. It's a well-told story of a guy with HIV who tries to keep going with his life, nothing else. Some controversial issues are addressed (Sadomasochism, fetishism, AIDS, loneliness, sexual promiscuity, dysfunctional families), but in a very direct, straight, non-gory way. Haven't heard of or seen a movie that deals with these subjects the way this one does. It offers a whole new look at AIDS and AIDS treatment above all. I hope young and older parents see the movie, because it will open their eyes and minds as well. AIDS *IS* among us, and the best way to fight it is TO KNOW WHAT'S ABOUT. The photography and direction are amazing. The performance of Juan Minujin is remarkable! If you're not gay, you might enjoy the movie as well.
