Editorial Reviews

Heading on a transatlantic voyage at sea from an Italian lab to America, D'Agostino is the story of a male human clone left for dead at the shores of Santorini, Greece. This lost cargo, commissioned by wealthy individuals for organ transplants, is abandoned as the freight cannot be recovered. Allan Dawson has recently inherited his grandmother's island estate. He's in a loveless relationship with his common law spouse Sylvia. As he finds this interesting freight, what follows is a macabre tale of self-realization as Allan proceeds to set himself out of his sedentary existence to mold his new male companion, at command, for his own personal sexual benefit with dire consequences.

Writer/director Jorge Ameer continues to make fascinating little films that dare to go where few others even contemplate. Asked to review the Unedited Proof of a film is both exciting and frustrating: exciting because the viewer gets to see all the ideas in their various forms before being edited into a final product, frustrating because the film comes in bit and pieces that dilutes the impact of the story. But there is enough here to see that once finished this strange, somewhat macabre story should have appeal with audiences.

Allan Dawson (Keith Roenke) is in a seemingly flatline relationship with live-in girlfriend Sylvia (Torie Tyson, better known for her singing than her acting skills): something is missing (other than the apparent age mismatch between the young Roenke and the more mature Tyson), a fact that becomes apparent when Allan is notified that his grandmother has bequeathed him land on the Greek Island of Santorini. Allan departs to investigate the surprise, thinking he will immediately sell the property to better his financial status. But once he arrives in Santorini he is mesmerized by the beauty of the island and is introduced to the inherited home by an agent Niko (Jorge Ameer). As Allan settles in he hears strange sounds and discovers they come form a locked closet containing a human clone - filthy and whimpering. The naked male is named D'Agostino (Michael Angels): apparently heading on a transatlantic voyage at sea from an Italian lab to America, D'Agostino is a human clone left for dead at the shores of Santorini. This lost cargo, commissioned by wealthy individuals for organ tranplants, is abandoned as the freight cannot be recovered.

Allan cleans the clone, feeds him, keeps him on a leash like a pet animal, an slowly becomes attached to D'Agostino.

Whilst I was intrigued on the potential of this movie...the gradual trust developing between the two main characters, nothing...I repeat nothing could prepare me or most people for the shocking over the top turn of events. Certainly not necessary. I actually turned off the movie and threw it away. I believe in cinema its great to push boundaries, shock to a degree. However I felt the whole dog/slave thing was more than enough. The unexpected and most shocking situation that unfolded made me question where do we draw the line with movie entertainment. Also where does "art" mirror the most horrendous of modern day crimes...D'Agostino goes well over that line. I would advise anyone with a modicum of sensitivity or moral values not to watch this rubbish! Its only positive points were the beautiful Greek scenery, the potential unfolding love, the social documentary on humdrum life in the UK before he takes his "sick" adventure into power and perversion. One of the worse films I have seen in the long time but could have so easily been groundbreaking and powerful if not for the too over the top shock film content! Shame really since was so looking forward to seeing this. Incidentally whilst others on here have alluded to a turn of events I wanted to post a review that warns others to not watch this if they are of a sensitive nature or only go so far when watching arthouse movies

Young corporate executive Allan Dawson feels bored with his life in London, especially with his live-in fiance'. When his grandmother leaves him property in beautiful Santori, Greece, he sees that as the perfect excuse to get away from both, stretching out the little time it actually takes to settle those legal matters. As he settles into the beautiful beach-front home, he discovers he has a houseguest of sorts ... a dirty, non-communicative young man who turns out to be an experimental clone raised to provide spare organs for rich people, but who escaped when the ship carrying him crashed off the island. His name, D'Agostino, is on a metal plate on his collar.

Allan initially treats D'Agostino as a unique pet, cleans him up and tries to teach him basic "No" and "Stay" commands, while feeding him from a dog bowl. But the attractive young clone, totally dependent on him, makes him realize what is missing in his own life, and he begins to form an emotional ... and eventually a sexual ... attachment that threatens to complicate his life from that point forward.

Billed on some sites as a "gay film," this really isn't, although it has content about repressed sexual desire, as well as a few points about gender identity. What it also has is filmmaker Jorge Ameer, who is known for his "over the top" films that seem to thrive on making the viewer uncomfortable, much in the way as people slow down to watch a bad accident on the freeway. The acting is adequate, though not great, and I had issues with both bad sound in some scenes and jerky photography that became a distraction. The ending was more than unsettling, though expected of this filmmaker. On the plus side is a pleasant musical score, and film of some of the most beautiful scenery you'll find anywhere. Some nudity and simulated sex, likely a strong R rating would have applied. While fans of the filmmaker would disagree, I can't give this more than three stars out of five.

The story line is a very good idea. I found it hard to follow at times. Some times it was a very good production and then it seemed not so. Several themes happen at the same time which come together in the end. The story of clones to be used to supply donor organs seemed to be what was going to happen, but it was totally not. Dark in content and the way it was filmed worked together fairly well. Politically correct would not be a term I would use on some of the remarks and actions. This is not a feel good type of movie, but it does make you think.
