Boys on Film 12 shows a partial return to form after the disappointing 11, and contains a deal of quality both storywise and in performance. There are no real duds and more than usual tend to stick in the mind and/or invite repeat viewing. I'll mention a few. The opening 'Home from the Gym' (USA) is a wordless view of a guy's post gym routine - kitted to naked - . 'Age 17' (Swiss) explores the hormonal turmoil within a teenager who falls for his priest. 'Human Warmth' (Belgium) is a more abstract glance at reigniting waning passion. The closing 'Tonight it's Me' (USA) is another take on the 'rent boy/surprising trick' scenario but here with a double twist in the tail and beautifully played. Overall then, a good addition to a series that, let's face it, and despite lapses, has made available to a wide audience many fine examples of gay shorts from around the world. Recommended.

Stories on the whole are good but lack bite. The cartoon story is incomprehensible and there is just muffle sound on one story so is intelligible others are less than 5 minutes long but there are three stories worth getting the DVD for but that is true for all the boys on film DVD's

This latest instalment of Boys On Film, number 12 in the series, falls short of the best, among which I would include 9 and 11, 4, and 5 in particular, with lots of other outstanding shorts mixed up with the less good. Here there is one outstanding film called Age 17. It is from Switzerland, and tells of a boy of that age who develops a crush on a priest who conducts the local brass band. The boy plays the drum in the band. It has a certain intensity from the beginning which carries through its 22 minutes, and is shot and acted in a way that opens out the screen. It is one of the few in the set that fits the title: Confession. It is good that it is the longest offering; it is preceded by the shortest, the 6-minute Deflated, which has a young boy creating havoc in a supermarket with a display of pink balloons. It borrows from The Red Balloon, without quite developing the idea of the balloons having a will of their own, but only because time runs out ... It is quite memorable and also well shot. Another 6-minute film opens the sequence, Home From The Gym, which is quite sexy as a sporty boy comes home in gear, strips off, and behaves in a way that asks big questions. It is quite striking, not least because of the boy's face, which is beautiful in a completely un-cliched way. The other films are all less good. Good Morning looks good on paper but is less engaging in reality. Showboy uses cliches about secrets and a gay rugby player who has a secret life as a drag artist - and then piles on further cliches about self-hating gay or bi-curious men who act violently because they can't deal with their feelings. Throw in a widowed father and treacherous new love and you have quite a lot going on for 15 minutes! The DVD peters out towards the end in a smorgasbord of cliché, but for those who like the series it can be tentatively recommended, and is sort-of interesting to watch even where the verdict is quite negative - they are too short to be tedious.
