Profoundly got my attention because of the lead characters in this film.  Fernando Arroyo as Jonas is commendable but not too expressive while Miguel Angel Hoppe shines in this film and was surprisingly exploratory of his character.  Alejandro Rojo as Sergio has a commanding presence and  has a cunning resemblance to actor Johnny Depp. This film delves on young gay love between university students and also tackles the conflicts associated with it, especially if a third party enters the picture. Reflective of  human relationships, this is a film worth checking out especially if you're into gay-themed movies.

Superb lighting during intimate scenes, emphasizing on the toned and sun-baked skin of gay lovers. But when one strays, conflict soon arises. Another guy comes along and a new relationship begins. The film explores gay relationships but I noticed that more emphasis was given on the physical contact from kisses to sexual contact. In a way, the film seems to signify that physical connection is powerful but sparks fizzle with time, as compared to a relationship built on a solid foundation of communication, trust and friendship,among others. This is reflective of human relationships and the film, once viewers go beyond the seemingly long intimate scenes will realize that such scenes are emphasized to make us realize the comparisons that go with relationships built mainly on a shallow physical one as opposed to a relationship that involves genuine communication thru dialogues and compatibilities. I observed that there were very scarce communications between the lead characters aside from the kissing, glances and stares. It is indicative that relationships thrive better and longer if there were also  worthwhile conversations and dialogues. If you relish gay themed films then this is to your liking.

Was so amazed with the extent how the two star-crossed gay lovers express their love so freely, kissing even in public places.  Very compelling performances, with very scarce dialogues and communication done usually through eye contact, kisses and sexual contact with accompanying songs in the background which serve as medium to convey the emotions. With intimate scenes that establish the gay relationships, this film delves on young gay love and the perils and conflicts that go with it. Good looking actors Arroyo and Rojo are commendable in their portrayals but Mguel Angel Hoppe is a notch higher with how he handled the character's complexities.
