Three Dancing Slaves
This explosive 2005 film from award-winning French writer-director (Full Speed, Under Another Sky) and actor (Wild Reeds) Gael Morel, is a harrowing, intense drama of destruction, rebellion, redemption and love. Set against the backdrop of a sultry countryside near the French Alps, three motherless brothers collectively face the challenges of adulthood. There is Marc (Nicolas Cazale), a burgeoning criminal; Christophe (Stephane Rideau), who is trying to restart his life after prison; and Olivier (Thomas Dumerchez), a capoeira fighter in love. As the young brothers wrestle with their transitions into manhood, they must each escape the tyrannical rule of their father to carve out their own places in life. Stunning cinematography and powerful performances help make Three Dancing Slaves an erotic, breathtaking film about family and the struggle of making your mark on the world around you.
Snails in the Rain
In this intelligent and emotional Israeli film set in 1989 Tel Aviv, Boaz (incredibly sexy male model Yoav Reuveni) is a linguistics student committed to his loving girlfriend, Noa (Moran Rosenblatt). But soon Boaz is questioning his life when he begins receiving a series of obsessive love letters from another man. They expose the inner world of their author, who is deeply closeted – and knows plenty about him, including Boaz’s past attraction to other men. Snails in the Rain is a sexy and thought-provoking drama that doubles as an intriguing mystery.
Victor and Rainer (Eliott Paquet and Dominik Wojcik) are typical young French hipsters on their way to Paris, swigging Red Bull, bantering about the Stone Roses, and musing about what awaits them. Checking into a club, Victor hits on the girls, while Rainer spikily rebuffs the advances of a male admirer. Testosterone surges, bravado leads to a face-off…just another night on the town. Until it’s not. Atomic Age is a stunningly shot character study perfectly capturing what it’s like to be a young man, fumbling their way through a sexual awakening, whilst negotiating the delicate bonds of friendship.
