Product Description

A perfect watch for a Valentine s night in, Dennis Todorovic s sensitive and eloquent tale of love and passion enveloped in a musical milieu echoes the brilliance of Chris Kraus Four Minutes and the Academy-Award winning Shine.

Sasha, confronted with the everyday prejudice of his homophobic family, struggles with his urge to come out. When his beloved piano teacher and local celebrity Mr. Weber plans to leave the city, the young man is heartbroken. The only person in whom he can confide his feelings is his best friend Jiao. After a failed audition, Sasha swears never to play piano again, but a consoling and heartfelt telephone call from the illustrious Mr. Weber changes his mind resulting in a passionate love affair. All secrets are exposed with Sasha's family proving to be more understanding of his predicament than he first thought...

4.0 out of 5 stars A good film ... 12 Feb 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
On the surface this is another coming-out story where the young guy has to deal with the homophobia of family members ... but the story is told with refreshing insights and good acting by all the participants. The object of Sasha's first love which leads to his "coming out" may not be worthy of such devotion but he's sexy as hell and (no plot spoliers I think) ... Sasha survives the experience well enough. What really makes this special is the dynamics between all of Sasha's family and the shared bond/curse of being immigrants in a foreign country. The mother, father, brother are all fully-rounded characters and well-realised by their respective actors. There's comedy and tragedy and a huge dollop of realism that made watching this story unfold areal pleasure.
Only criticism is the sub-titles were often hard to read as they were displayed on a very light background.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 10 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
This film is stunning - it has been shot beautifully, the scenes all look amazing, the music is perfect, and the actors are top rate. Much better than the majority of LGBT films. A worthy winner of Best Feature at the Iris Prize festival in 2011.

5.0 out of 5 stars An all embracing film. Very watchable. 11 April 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed this one. Very well acted with a very sound script. It's more than a simple coming out story. Way more. It embraces the whole family of Balkan immigrants who fail to integrate after 20 years in Germany. The two boys have integrated of course which makes this worse for the ogre of a father who really cannot understand the attitude of his sons. You really feel for the Chinese violinist who is waiting to be asked to be Sasha's official girlfriend and there is a very tender scene by the river when her world collapses. The film is heavily cultured because classical music is the background to the film and we learn very late into the film that the mother (who lives for Sasha) obviously had a promising career in music but gave it up to `improve' her life. I suggest you watch the deleted scenes especially about the gun and the dopey uncle as it gives a better understanding of the final scenes in the bar. Well worth watching. If more of such films can be produced they would act as a much needed counter balance to US run of the mill gay themed films with far too much Hollywood gloss to be wholesome.

By Tommy Dooley TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is the story of Sasha (Sascha Kekez) who is living in Germany having left Montenegro. His mother has pushed him to become a virtuoso of the piano and has worked extra hard for his private piano lessons. His father still has both feet placed in the macho centric society of Montenegro and would rather see his son exceeding at something more manly, like swimming or street fighting. Still Sasha's piano lessons are not wasted money as far as he is concerned as he not only gets to `tinkle the ivories' but also to indulge his crush on his piano teacher - self centred gay man about town Gebhard Weber ( Tim Bergmann).

Sasha also has a best friend in Chinese, voiln playing Jiao, although she rather fancies him and has been bemused by his reticence in coming on to her. All is soon revealed when Herr Weber decides he is leaving town for ever and a grief stricken Sasha tells her everything. Sashas' Dad thinks Jiao is also the girlfriend of Sasha but things take an awkward turn when his brother Boki takes a liking for Jiao and she don't say no.

This is just a beautiful film, when I read the synopsis I thought it was going to be one of those films that tries to be a bit arty in the deconstruct of modern relationships versus old country ways, and in many ways it is, but it is the way in which this is done that makes this so special.

Writer and director Dennis Todorovic has got the balance right on absolutely every single level. There is humour, understanding and sympathy for all the characters, and that is very rare indeed, Even though the story is about Sasha we get to feel how all of the people involved have a part to play and how acceptance can be painful for both sides when faced with a son coming out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh story on coming out 14 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Sasha is a teen age classical pianist, with a crush on his piano teacher
nicely played by Tim Bergmann (some of us recall his performance
in the film "Regular Guys") Coming out is not easy for Sasha, living
with his immigrant parents. I am not going to say much more
for fear of "spoilers". You need to see this. Pardon me while I
watch it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, touching tale of first love
Admitedly bought for the hot men. But what I found was a lovely film that most, if not all, can relate to. Very good film. Very good acting. A pleasure to watch.

This arrived on time and is as expected. The only problem was that it was duplicated - someone else also bought it from the same wishlist as the wishlist was updated quickly enough

4.0 out of 5 stars MISLEADING TAGS
Enjoyed the film - everyone always likes a film about how miserable it is to be gay - but why did all those people say 'full frontal male nudity'? There isn't any!
