Kapgang

In a quirky, small town, situated in the outskirts of everything, 14-year-old Martin is getting ready for one of the most formal transitions from boy to man; the communion. Its 1976, music is in the air, hormones are blossoming and Martin is trying get to terms with his confused sexuality. However, in the midst of it all, Martin’s mother suddenly passes away and her tragic death triggers a series of events that not only changes Martin’s life forever, but also affects everyone else in the local community.

There’s a proper trailer as well but sadly it conveniently leaves out the whole queer sub-plot… which didn’t save the film from the critics upset about sex scenes involving teenagers anyway though.

  1. That was beautiful! Very well put together video. I hadn’t even heard about this film and I’m from Denmark. Seems like it’s based on a book by the same name.
    Looks a bit like their relationship doesn’t play a big role in the story, but it might be worth watching anyways :)

    P.S. Those high-rise trousers… I sure am glad they’re gone!

  2. care , spoilers !!! the author could continue the story , and make Martin and Kim get together … I was very sad for Martin , he even gay and there was a relationship between him and the girl. maybe one day there is a continuation ( I would be very happy with this)

    There’s a great response to the above at that link:

    “Yeah, if your a bible thumping prude like the homophobic reviewer above, stay away! But if [you’re] an open minded, down to earth person who enjoys a quirky coming of age story, you’ll love it!”

  4. Not had a chance to look at the film yet but a shame that reviewer rubbished it. Looks a very tame sentimental coming of age drama in the mould of Noordzee, Du er ikke and Get Real. Cuddling up and pecking on the lips is hardly a sex scene.

  5. Thanks for torrent link Proton but it is a big file without subs and the only subs can find are on a malware ridden site. Will buy the dvd.

    1. @strawedj:

      I enjoyed that song as well. Thanks for the video link — good sound, but unfortunately, very poor lip-syncing (editing, probably) — it’s so obvious.

  6. The kissing they showed in this short should have been the kisses between Jude & Connor ….. just enough to get the message across, but still show some passion — which the Jonnor kiss so obviously lacked.

  7. A most wonderful and heartwarming film, that does not need ‘sex scenes’ to make the point.

    It is a beautiful strory, wonderful music and appreciate the torrent link – thanks Cpt.Proton :-)

    Both boys are equally beuatiful in their own special way and is a story I think MANY of us can relate to from our own teenage years.

    Thanks for the post and video.

  8. Looks to be a possibly beautiful, tender, coming of age film but, why the terrible 2015 nasal hipster voice music? Isn’t it supposed to be the 1970s, when music was… we’ll… good?

  9. After exploring a number of the blog articles on your
    web site, I seriously like your technique of blogging.
    I saved as a favorite it to my bookmark webpage list and
    will be checking back soon. Please check out my website too and let me know your opinion.
