  1. What a wonderful Australian short film about that hazy area where teen boys know who they are and their attempts to pass it off as a “phase” because they fear bullying or a depletion of their social standing. Kudos to the young character who knows who he is and subtlety lets his “friend” know how he feels.

    1. “their attempts to pass it off as a “phase” because they fear bullying or a depletion of their social standing.”

      That’s just about perfect wording — thanks for that. :-)

  2. Is it too unrealistic to hope for a happy ending, that the two boys will end up getting together?

  3. Even though it is not the same theme, this film reminds me of “Wild Tigers I Have Known.”

  4. I love this short. I watch it when I feel a bit down and want to smile a bit.

    Another one I like a lot is: 33 Teeth It makes me smile even more.

  5. Funny… When I was their age there were certain guys who’d mess around. It was acceptable to use your hand or mouth or even a foot to get off with one of those budds, but KISS him? That meant you were a homo! We were such pea-brains, making excuses to each other for the stuff we did and adhering to that unwritten code about what was okay and what was taboo. It was confusing and exciting and the stuff we did on each other, it felt like we were inventing it. All that newness. Those times of youthful exploration and discovery… Oh, how I miss those days.

  6. Nice video. As a young, no one ever says they love me but mom. There are hints. While walking around the streets do discover more sexual hints. Cease being a virgin at 19. The word ‘faggot’ never means fire but only as a more specific word from the word ‘queer’.
