Trailer Alert: The Acrobat

Montreal is snowed under. While the downtown cranes dance their ballet, two strangers meet randomly in an unfinished apartment. Their chance encounter leads to a violent attraction and a dependency beyond reason. One man is a Russian-born professional acrobat whose future is jeopardized by a broken leg. The other is a buttoned-down, well-groomed man of few words. Which one dominates? Which one manipulates? As it turns out, love is painful and human relations are complex.

 

The newest film from French-Canadian provocateur Rodrigue Jean (Men for Sale, Love in the Time of Civil War), The Acrobat features real and very explicit gay sex scenes. Viewer discretion is strongly advised.
