    Hello....people....theres more to the world than just europe and america. Monster Pies was Australian, Out in the dark, Yossi & Jagger were Israeli. British movies tend to be a bit grittier than their american counterparts movies like Get Real, The Cost of Love and Picadilly Junction, Bashment could never have been made in america. Spain also has had some good movies , even if you leave out Almodovar (though why would you?). Their movies are different and stylish in a way many other countries don't quite manage. That is not to diminish the smerican contribution at all, but even on film, there is more than one colour in the rainbow and it's good to embrace....and acknowledge them all.

    Beautiful film. Reminded me of how much things have changed from back then. Young people today have a completely different opportunities to be themselves. It easy to take granted, but films like these remind us of what it used to be.
  • IOANNA333 2015-02-28 01:12:05
    The ending had me in tears.
