    Damn interruption. It was the only time and they couldn't enjoy it in peace.

     I am stunned by some of the comments.  Whatever cowardly and dishonest decisions Stig made, he of all people should be telling the boy to figure it out, not trading kisses and handjobs and encouraging him to pursue the relationship with his own daughter.  Jeezus.  Did he learn nothing in nearly 20 years of living a lie?  Ugh.  Double Ugh.  Triple Ugh.  At least at the end, he backed off and maybe the kid will not make the same mistake.

    There is no dishonor in making a choice to suppress a part of ones nature to pursue a life that is deemed worthy. The father made the right choice and did not regret it. It is human to be weak for a moment. But he did himself a justice by sending the boy away.

    How very sad, so many men get married and have families suppressing their true sexual orientation due to the pressures of society and religion . Glad the young man realised who he really is before he made the same mistake the father did.

    Right around the sixteen minute mark, I paused the movie and said out loud "That was a game changer move. And you, my friend....just changed the game."

    WELL i think the european films are better. they seem more character and story focused instead of like amazing special effects or car explosions. <3

    Amazing. Deeply human! I love it!
  • Sanket 2014-04-22 20:02:05
    i loved the kiss in the car and when they give handjob to each other.
  • Sanket 2014-04-22 20:01:18
    they both cannot be gay, they are bi because both of them also enjoy sex with women.

    Aw the boy is so naive and cute. I commend his honesty... can't say the same thing about his tastes. Stig is the most boring-looking person I've ever seen in my life. Carsten has his whole life ahead of him but the married man? sad for him. I hate that he didn't help Carsten understand and not exactly the way they were going to do it before.

    This video is great, it rates at the top of my list for every category, as good as any professional film, just cropped down.
