Beautiful but dark and depressing. A very quiet film with little dialogue.  Sweeping scenes of barren landscapes and empty fields serve to increase the sense of isolation which pervades.  The film deals with both internalised homophobia and homophobia from members of the small, local community.   Don't go into this one hoping for people to realise the error of their ways or hoping for a happily ever after.  Moving, thought-provoking and some superb acting.  Would recommend.

I found the  comparison between internationalised and local homophobia interesting.

ClementineB yes, I agree and on the international front the film seems to be saying something too about the hyper masculine sports scene and the homophobia which is still rife in football. The contrast between Aron and Bernard was interesting too, I thought. Did you enjoy the film?
