Lots of long, pensive looking photography but precious little else...

So two young roomies at college - "Derek" (Sebastian Castro) and "Mark" (Mikoy Morales) muddle along with the former struggling to keep a girlfriend. When he finds himself dumped by his latest, he seeks solace on his bed with his headphones doing his best Greta Garbo impression... His pal wants to help him, though, and what starts off as a supportive cuddle ends up with us all one year later and "Mark" frustrated that his friend will not be open about their new relationship with their fellow students. The narrative does touch a few nerves - there are doubtless couples in a similar predicament with one more reticent to be "out" than the other, but the writing here is dreadful and repetitive; it jumps between Filipino and English in an annoyingly disjointed manner and the acting is lacklustre. There is a poignant final scene, though - if only it were so straightforward for everyone, but sadly the rest of it is gay wallpaper.

Is that all there is?

The movie is full of painfully slow shots of nothing interesting. Long drawn out aerial views of their school, several minutes of one squinting with the sun behind him, an artsy scene shot through a pool ladder of one of them doing so many laps in a pool that I felt my fingertips wrinkling. One of the characters has a long line of ex-girlfriends and all I can think of is how each of them is lucky to no longer be involved with him. The two main characters are not endearing enough to want the viewer to care about either of them. Then, just when you think that there might be something interesting about to happen, the closing titles come on.

A waste of time and talent

Next to Broken Hearts Club, this has to be the phoniest 'gay' movie I have ever seen. It's bad enough that a lot of screen time is taken up by unnecessarily long scenes, such as periods of brooding silence, aerial shots of trees and buildings, and one of the lead characters serenading his girlfriend with an entire song — from start to finish. Intimate scenes between the two lead characters, which I think is pertinent to the theme and plot of the movie, are totally absent. The only 'kiss' we see is at the end, but it is shot from such a distance that the two guys could be checking each other for zits or dental plaque for all we can see. I don't know about you, but if two male actors cannot bring themselves to be explicitly intimate with one another in a gay-themed romance movie, even for the camera, it smacks of 'insincerity' or maybe even homophobia. Whatever, the assumptions some gay viewers may form over this reluctance leaves an ugly taste in the mouth. Are they afraid the Filipino stars may damage their 'macho' image? The Philippines, FYI, still has hang-ups about gay male sexuality, preferring to lump the many forms of gay men, from cisgender to transwomen to 'effeminate' gays under one label — the disparaging 'baklak'. It's the same in Malaysia, where similar categories of male sexuality are collectively known as 'pondan' or 'bapok', the Malay equivalent of 'fag' or 'queen'. Which is a shame really, seeing as how the Philippines are also to produce cutting-edge and risqué stuff like Antonio's Secret. Apart from the eye candy, this one just fails to break any new ground.
