tarring Alex Dimitriades and Damien Fotiou. Directed by Ana Kokkinos.

This is quite a scarce film to get, and recently enjoyed the spotlight again after its star, Alex Dimitriades, played one of the leads in the TV series Seven Types of Ambiguity. A young Greek man from a very conservative family tries very hard to walk the safe heterosexual path. But he meets several gay men that he feels attracted to, and has a sexual encounter with one of them with a graphic nude scene that gave the film notoriety in 1998 because of its explicit full frontal nudity. After this provocative moment, the film, unfortunately, plods the predictable path of a man struggling with his sexuality and is not worth the trouble. Predictable and not gripping.
