Parties and love affairs lead to heart searching, deep desires and a craving to live life to the fullest as a group of good friends come to terms with the unexpected death of beloved group member, Hugo. Ana, Hugo’s partner, attempts to overcome her loss by going to sex clubs, while Hugo’s brother, Arthur finds comfort in Grindr hook-ups. One night Arthur begins an affair with sexy Graciano, who has yet to come to terms with his bisexuality, adding fuel to an already raging fire. Even Lovers Get the Blues is an explicit portrait of the love and the fluid sexual lives of disenchanted and passionate young people.
A contemporary pan-sexual drama that can best described as the darker, equally sexy Belgian versions of John Cameron Mitchell’s Shortbus, this film features a ton of nudity and some truly explicit sex scenes. It’s an adult-only exploration of the love and sexual lives of a group of fascinating young lovers. And though there is lots of explicit sex, as we mentioned, this isn’t some debauched affair. There are deeply emotional characters that you will come to care about – and romance and discovery a-plenty!
