Product Description

Product Description

A hot three-way love story that s fresh, engrossing and sumptuously shot, freshman soccer player Szabi (András Süt ) has moved from Hungary to Germany to become a professional athlete. While he usually gets along with fellow player and roommate Bernard (Sebastian Urzendowsky), a lost game and a quarrel compel Szabi to return to Hungary, where he s inherited his grandparents derelict home. One night, someone tries to steal his old bike, and that is how he meets Aron (Adam Varga), a young man from the village. What starts as a rough meeting changes when they begin to work together on the house. Their simple and basic life turns complicated when Bernard shows up from Germany. Then the locals start to react to the threesome. Land of Storms is a strong, personal story of sexual awakening, self-discovery, and intolerance.

It is quite rare to see a Hungarian film over here, let alone a gay one, and this one makes a very good impression overall. It tells of a young Hungarian footballer who is making a professional career in Germany, then falls foul of the coach and returns to Hungary where he lives in a dilapidated country house left to him by his grandfather. He falls for a young handyman who helps him with the roof, who gets very caught up on him too after the footballer feels him up below the tool-belt as he sleeps ... Then a teammate from Germany comes to give him some moral support, with whom there had been some confrontation in the showers with gay undertones. The film is very well acted by the three leads and every shot is interesting without being pretentious. Early on I thought it would make an outstanding slideshow, but then I was surprised by how it developed. Not only did the main character Szabi seem more sympathetic after a dubious start, once you get more background on his life, but the roofer, Aron, is the kind of straight boy many of us lusted after at school ... and the German teammate, Bernard, also has a very likeable face and nature. Perhaps the script could have been a bit fuller, however there are many compensations: the beauty of the images, the appeal of all three young men in quite different ways, the Hungarian countryside, and a certain sense of pace that elevates it over some gay films that are superficially similar. If anything it most approaches the Canadian film CRAZY in its dealing with conflicts and homophobia both within and outside the relationship, as well as its sensual and emotional pull. It is intensely erotic in places, without being explicit; on the other hand, the tragic ending, already flagged up by other reviewers, may spoil it for some.Read more ›

A moving, confronting and sometimes violent movie about a young guy who plays foothball with a German Club. He struggles with his homosexual feelings. This takes place at the background of a village in the beautifull Hungarian countryside. The setting of the film is gay love opposite severe violence, I always find violence against one another, because of a different gender and lifestyle , severe and horrible!
The young actors give a outstanding preformance! I only found the script of the movie incomplete between the different scenes. And that is too bad, because this movie and its actors deserve a good script! That is why I give this movie 4 stars. Despite that a film worth watching!!

Two boys are talented football players in Germany Szabolcs is from Hungary and his best friend Bernard is German. Then after a particularly unfruitful game, Szabolc decides to return to Hungary and live in the broke down farm that he inherited from his grandfather.

Whilst he had rejected his homosexual urges in Germany - once he gets home he meets Áron and for him it is a game changer. The thing is it is also a game changer for the whole community. To say any more may be veering in to plot spoiler territory. Needless to say there are depictions of homophobia here. Some may say that we have seen it all before, but films like this need to be made to address the still pervading attitudes in many countries and communities towards LGBT people.

Filmed in Hungarian, German and a tad of English with good sub titles. This is done using an original story line, a group of talented actors and a lot of warmth. The decisions that some of the characters make may be questionable, but I am pretty safe in saying that we all have made mistakes in our lives. I found this to be engrossing, sensual - in parts - and ultimately moving; this is for lovers of gay cinema in all its parts.

In the first 20 minutes, I was thinking, "hmm, no clue what this is about yet". Half way through, I was completely engrossed and at the end, I was just stunned. A really great movie and the actors and director really deserve plenty of praise. I was particularly impressed by the three main actors because it's rare for me to see straight guys playing gay roles who make me truly and completely believe them. This actors just seemed fully committed to every scene and nuisance even though you can see they were straight and that to me was phenomenal. THAT is what I call acting. WOW. A big thank you to all those who made this happen. I totally enjoyed it and will be watching it again sometime.

There's no question that director Ádám Császi's film looks stunning, and benefits from some attractive leads, but this isn't the "hot three-way love story" Amazon's product description promises (although a hot threeway does feature). It's primarily a film about homophobia, and homophobic violence, and (spoiler alert) it doesn't end well.

There's some discussion in the other reviews for this film about anti-gay violence and unhappy endings, much of which I agree with. All too often it feels like the easy option for filmmakers, the sudden, violent death of the protagonist. It's a tactic I'm fed up with too. No one's asking for a happy ever after ending, but does it always have to end with the bloody slaying of the gay guy? It isn't shocking, you just think, "Gee, I didn't see that coming."

Climax aside, "Land of Storms" is well worth seeing. Enjoy the trip, but don't be surprised by the dark clouds rolling in...
