a short film by Søren Green.

2016 | 10 mins | Denmark.

the developing relationship between a pair of gay teenagers.

Dave says:

As the second chapter in the continuing story of the developing relationship between gay teenagers Mathias (Ulrik Windfeldt-Schmidt) and Frederik (Jacob August Ottensten); see An Afternoon for the first instalment, co-writer and director Søren Green has once again beautifully captured the inner yearnings of a pair of young men who only have eyes for each other.

Yet all is not as it appears. For whilst Mathias is only too happy to have seemingly spent an evening of sexual tenderness with Frederik, the man himself is clearly struggling to come to terms not only with his feeling for Mathias, but of a sexuality that is taking him in a direction that he never expected to go.

With wonderfully natural performances from the boys, this well-played piece has a lush tactile feel to it, as here we find Frederik in a state of sexual confusion; playing it straight one moment, whilst equally looking at his best friend with eyes of sexual exploration, the next. Jealous when Mathias' friend Amalie (Julia Wentzel Olsen) unexpectedly shows up, only for her to suggest that the two of them look cute together, the raging hormones of adolescent youth are soon to be seen. Yet therein lies the twist to this tale; for could the scenes of sexual tenderness between the boys have been a figment of Frederik's imagination? No doubt the closing chapter of this wondrous trilogy of short films will let us know. Say no more.
