"David" was quite disturbing but engaging to watch!  Director Fiescornmasterfully brought out a candid performance out of the lead actors. A bondrnbetween a young but mute boy and a much older man is an unconventionalrn idea and more so, because of the gay theme. The conclusion is of coursernup to the viewers and despite of the moral complications it is an endearingrnfilm with just a touch of naivety.

Interesting short gay films! "Candy Boy" is a stand-out not only because it's animated but the gay theme was revealed later on.  The love-hate relationship between Candy boy and the newly-arrived orphan was really a mask of deeper feelings from within. This French anime gay flick is creatively unique and engaging to watch! Do check out this collection, folks.
