Quotes

Simplesmente Pantera: It was pointless to play macho using a weiner. You're so full of yourself. But I won't swallow it. It's not about being fucked in the ass. Being queer is about resistance. I admit, even I can't stand being myself. It takes a lot of talent to be as queer as I am.

So-so
2 June 2018 | by Sebastien02See all my reviews

This film follows the daily life of Elias, a young and attractive gay man. He lives in Sao Paulo and works as an assistant designer in a textile factory. During his free time, he enjoys having sex with other boys or going out with friends. The acting is good, but the story is not compelling enough. It lacks a thread. So I got bored after an hour.
