Two buddies become dangerously entangled in the new erotic gay thriller Isaac

The debut film from directing duo David Matamoros and Angeles HernandezIsaac employs two different timelines to tell the story of two couples who clash together.

Former childhood friends Denis and Nacho (Ivan Sanchez and Pepe Ocio) had an intense relationship as teenagers. After years apart, they meet in a café and seemingly regain those distant ties of trust, affection and complicity.

Denis, who needs money for a business venture, doesn’t hesitate in asking Nacho for a loan. From there begins a game of mutual dependencies in which the two men’s partners – Marta (Maria Ribera) and Carmen (Erika Bleda) – are both implicated. And if this four-way collaboration was not complex enough, loose ends, social pressures, ambition, repressed desires and the guilt that has been weighing on the two men for many years further complicate this intense story of polyamory.

Now Available On-Demand: Song Lang

Set in a richly imagined 1980s Saigon, Song Lang is both a gritty underworld noir and an operatic romance.

 

An unlikely bond develops between hunky, brooding Dung (Lien Binh Phat), a tough debt collector for a ruthless loan shark, and Linh Phung (popular V-pop singer Isaac), a charismatic young opera singer. The two meet when Dung comes to forcefully collect a debt from the struggling opera troupe. But when their paths cross again, a deep friendship develops, awakening romantic feelings in both men. Making his feature-length debut, Vietnamese director Leon Le serves up a uniquely lush melodrama, teasing a smoldering relationship between two apparent opposites set against the backdrop of a gorgeous art form as it fades out of fashion.

 

Song Lang has earned major critical acclaim, and for his breakout performance, Lien Binh Phat has picked up rising star awards at festivals all across Asia.
