Chen Aisen is not only a cutie, he’s also a world class diver. This jump got him the gold medal at the Olympic Games in Rio.
Update: The original video was taken down; I replaced it with one from NBC that should stay up longer but sadly isn’t quite as good as the first one, instead of focusing on his last dive and his reaction (not to mention his hot body) after, it shows all dives he made in the finals cut together which makes any of them look a bit less impressive. The last one is the dive the original video was about.
The journey of a suicidal transgender teen in small-town Sweden swerves between striking and meandering in this impressive drama. What’s most consistent is the compelling lead performance from newcomer Saga Becker, who stars as Sebastian/Ellie, a waif whose need for sex and love leads to a dysfunctional affair. The object of her desire is a boy whose confused sexuality threatens to destroy the budding relationship.
The film’s bittersweet take on young love is familiar, but the gender-related difficulties add something fresher, and Becker has an undeniable screen presence. Director Ester Martin Bergsmark’s slight film works best as a character study focused almost exclusively on the lead. There’s a grubby ugliness – from transphobic violence to an obsession with urine – and a garish style that leaves an impression, although too much repetition holds it back.
You can watch the whole film on Vimeo–if you speak either Swedish or Spanish. I’ll try to find an English version and link it here when I do.
There is one worry that almost every teen and pre-teen seems to struggle with: Is my dick big enough? Much to the delight of some of their friends who make sure not to miss that opportunity to satisfy their urges to get naked with them, only for comparison of course ;) It’s a worry that no one should despair over though because in almost all cases it does indeed get bigger.
