Did I miss the point of this film? Is it an examination of incest, of coming out, of gay sex or merely of sibling rivalry? The film finished with a dozen unanswered questions and I found it very disappointing, despite the positive review it received.
Had the film managed to examine how/why an incestuous relationship had developed between these 2 brothers, then the film might have worked to some degree. As it is, little background is given to past events, and the 2 brothers change their minds regarding their feelings for one another almost on a scene-to-scene basis. The end result for me was that it was just another gay film, but without the obligatory sex scene or any sort of satisfactory ending. The 2 actors playing the brothers did their best, but they could not look more different physically. This, as well as the implausible storyline, made it extremely difficult to believe that they were related as claimed, which surely defeated the entire object of the film?
The film's content is controversial and you might anticipate it as being uncomfortable to watch. However be warned that it falls very short of any expectations you might have.
