The Blonde One is one of the year’s sexiest and most romantic gay movies

In the suburbs of Buenos Aires, Gabriel (Gaston Re) has just moved in with his colleague, Juan (Alfonso Baron). Shy and reserved, Gabriel is reluctant to follow Juan’s wandering hands and meaningful looks. With a revolving door of beauties streaming out of Juan’s bedroom, his machismo seems firmly in place. However, the attraction between the two men is undeniable. What starts out as a sexual relationship based on convenience of location soon develops into the engrossing evolution of a tender and intimate relationship, which is as sweet as it is heartbreaking. But, as reality begins to set in on their homemaking fantasy, something needs to give… or does it?

Written and directed by accomplished queer filmmaker Marco Berger (the same guy behind Plan B, Hawaii, Sexual Tension: Volatile, Absent, Taekwondo and more), The Blonde One is easily one of the year’s sexiest gay movies.

Throwback Thursday: The Hours and Times

“Uncategorizable, unforgettable… Munch’s brave and moving film achieves his goal beautifully.”
– Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“Exquisitely written and performed. Munch’s understated vignette announced the arrival of a young, but fully mature talent.”
– David Ansen, Newsweek

“A sharp, concise, evocative film about friendship.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times

“A spare, but highly polished examination… Not only is the acting strong, yet understated, but the script has the knack of creating both character and relationships through dialog. This enhances the film’s sense of eavesdropping on an intricate psychological reality, something that is especially difficult to achieve when the fictionalization of celebrities is involved.”
– Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times
