Berlin, Summer - Cibrâil, a young policeman, is living happily with his girlfriend in Berlin. On the surface, everything seems to be perfect. Well integrated in society despite his Turkish background, and not lacking for money or comfort, he appears to have a good life. But something is causing the young policeman sleepless nights. It's only when his girlfriend's sexy male cousin comes to stay, and a passionate romance begins, that things once hidden well below the surface begin to finally surface, and and, bit by bit, Cibrâil's life is turned upside down.

The Visitor is Marco, cousin of Christine who comes from Rome to stay with her and her Turkish boyfriend Cibrail in Berlin. He speaks totally fluent German, seems to be a happy-go-lucky type of person who works as a DJ. Christine works in an art gallery while Cibrail is a policeman, and quite reserved. He runs a lot, as if working out inner anxieties. Anyway it's quite clear where the story is heading and there are no real surprises, but it is nonetheless enjoyable. Sometimes you don't need to be surprised ... there is an authenticity about the style, which feels like a home movie. There is not much dialogue at key points, leading to a slight feeling of flatness. I also wondered whether it wouldn't have been more affecting with better music than the rather anodyne synthesised soundtrack. However I thought the two leads were attractive and quite sensually presented, Cibrail himself having a beautiful mouth which looks like a bow on its side - the final image of the film, in fact. It's nowhere near as good as Harvest, also from tla releasing and set near Berlin, and it doesn't quite fulfil the promise of the cover image. The script is not sharp enough to get a real sense of intimacy across.

This is a strange little movie. It's as if someone really, really wanted to make a gay movie but (1) didn't know anything about being gay, and (2) didn't know anything about making a movie.

What's surprising is that it isn't in any way offensive. In fact, it's sort of touching, that someone cared enough to make a movie for us even though he didn't know how, sort of like a toddler making a homemade valentine for his parents: it's so sweet that only a jerk could be offended by its naive amateurishness.

It's not even a particularly boring movie, although the last six of its 69 minutes are the end credits, scrolling so slowly you can hardly tell they're moving, while the most somniferous music I've ever heard drones along with them.

There are also many shots of a tall, ugly, perforated metal sculpture standing in the middle of a river, and many short clips of cast members doing things like swimming, or walking, and then fade to black. Only the director knows what those clips are supposed to mean.

The movie seems to have been made with a digital camera on auto-focus and auto-exposure, which I've never seen in a professionally released movie before. The acting and direction are clumsy at best, and there's no dialog to speak of.

Cibrâil is not a good movie by any conventional standards, but I loved it. I'm going to watch it again, now that I know what to expect of it.

So I can recommend it only to someone who is willing and able to receive it as a well-meant gift from a loving child, who can't yet draw a picture of you as you look to yourself, but very touchingly draws the love he sees in you.

Just about everything about this film harks back to an era when gay sex wasn't allowed to speak its name, and if it did, girl-friends packed their bags and walked out in a huff - which is exactly what happened in this rather earnest and amateurish film. Shots either tended to dissolve to black or subjects were allowed to walk out of the frame. Music was used very sparsely which just added to the feeling of longueur. Neither of the main characters were particularly attractive. At one point, I thought the subplot of men being assaulted or murdered in the park might actually amount to something, but it didn't and seemed rather pointless. What sex there was in the film was so discrete the characters could have been humping a sack. The final, excruciatingly slow credits summed it up. The only positive thing about the film was its brevity. One for the charity shop, I'm afraid.

This is what you can expect: one principal character (Cibrâil) who is emotionally and sexually suppressed, constantly looking morose and with limited acting ability. The object of his affection (Marco) is a much nicer and more handsome man whose dramatic talent has been misused, mainly because of a bad script.

With a higher budget and a better script, cut and ditto director the film could have been much better. The tension between the two men makes it worth watching though and that is mainly because of the delicious Marco. He deserves a 4. However, it is worth buying.

Quite an intense story but one which kept my attention throughout and I enjoyed it a second time.
