Editorial Reviews

Review

The vast majority of gay-themed films center on urban gays wittily seeking love and sex. But Harvest is refreshingly set in an entirely different world - a German farming community where the relationship between two teens unfolds in a quietly absorbing fashion. Life on a farm is all that sullen teen Marco knows: he leads a quiet life of working, going to school and avoiding the advances of girls. His self-imposed solitude ends when curly-haired Jakob, rejecting the banking world for farming, arrives to train on the farm. The two are initially cautious and tentative with each other but spurred by unspoken sexual tension, they become friends and more. But can two young men trapped in the countryside accept their homosexuality, let alone become lovers? An original take on coming out, Harvest may begin slowly as the world of the farming community is laid out for us, but when Marco and Jakob s relationship builds, the story becomes sensual, romantic and amazingly real. - --Raymond Murray

4.0 out of 5 stars A real genre-bender December 18, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Think socialist educational film on the joys of a government farmer training program, complete with earnest salt-of-the-earth agriculture instructors sporting haircuts so genuinely awful their 'do's actually achieve that ever ulta-elusive uber-hip of those who have found utter liberation from status-seeking. Oh, yeah, there is plenty of mucking out stalls and bucking bails and all those authentic farm activities, but never the remotest suggestion of any West Hollywood fantasies about a roll in the hay. Instead, slowly-as-watching-grass-grow, there develops a friendship so quiet and understated I had to keep rewinding because I thought I must have missed some crucial smoldering glances over the feed hopper or some such coded signal these two guys want each other. Nope. Yet, still, somehow the brokeback yearning seeps through, like, well a force of nature as relentless as the seasons. It's one of the odder films I've ever seen--such a deadpan absence of anything flashy, it may as well have been video verité--it absolutely succeeds without our lads so much as skinny dipping at the swimming hole. Yes, it is in German, and unlikely to get ground through the farcical Hollywood ratings system. But if it were, I feel certain it might well qualify as the first G-rated farming education and gay romance flick in the history of world cinema.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable November 28, 2011
By jkm211
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The movie is a story about two young farmer apprentices making a discovery of their sexuality, falling in love. One of the two young men readily opens up to the possibility of the same sex relationship while the other takes time to reach self-acceptance. The production takes on the flavor of a "home-made" movie that at times feels like a documentary story, with interview-like acting, little music, and lots of background noises of the farm machinery, firmly grounding the story in realism. I have enjoyed every moment of this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Artfully Paced November 17, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
American gay movies can revel in the "gay" and the cliche. They sometimes forget that a simple love story can still work. It's a shame these aren't made more here. The movie is enjoyable and lacking in faux, storyboarded tension. I'd recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Moving love story not in the usual places January 20, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Most of the so-called "gay-themed" love stories on film that I have seen have taken place primarily in urban areas with their usual meeting places and "troubles" that come with high-density locals. This low budgeted German (with, of course, sub-titles) film instead tells a very moving love story between two very "clean-cut" appearing young men that are learning to be farmers on a huge farm that mainly raises cattle. The film lovingly shows how these two young men cope with their "blossoming" love while shoveling cow manure.

Mario has been a farm apprentice on the above mentioned huge farm for awhile always longing "for something else" to see and to do. Enter into his life another young man with the desire to learn farming and having more knowledge of the world (i.e., he can drive) The two tentatively fall in love not really knowing how to handle it. Their love story unfolds at a pace that, to me, is very reflective of their surroundings--no wild sex scenes, no wild parties, no smoked filled bars with loud disco music are shown . Just a very quiet "coming together",is reflected in this very fine film. (In fact the movie has no sound tract or soundtrack)

I really enjoyed this very romantic movie that is void of violence, nudity and sex but filled with romantic love.

5.0 out of 5 stars this movie is an act of love. January 6, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not every precious stone is a diamond; this movie is merely a perfect emerald or sapphire. Nevertheless, it is a first class "engagement" ring. We see how wonderfully the characters engage.
We are not bothered with family dynamics; these characters are young adults away from home. We do not have to absorb chatter that reveals motivation; we can infer their inner states from their interactions. We do watch the two main characters move toward each other until courage takes them the last step, into each other's arms. Beautifully shot, lovingly paced, affectively acted, movingly resolved. What the hell else do you want?

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, gentle, fascinating love story February 5, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved this movie. The first time Jacob and Marko sit in the abandoned car is one of the most beautiful scenes I have ever seen in any movie, and they hardly say a word; it's all in their eyes and in the way they move. Kai Michael Müller (Jacob) is especially appealing, but both guys are excellent. This movie is far more sensual than movies with nudity and sex (Harvest has none of either).

I should give up trying to understand why other people don't like the same things I do. I can't imagine thinking this movie is slow or boring or dull. I watched it all the way through in one sitting because I simply couldn't break myself away from it. So much was happening that I didn't want to miss any of it. I've seen over a thousand movies in the past five years, and I could count on one hand the ones I've watched in one sitting.

There is no violence in it at all, and only the very briefest flash of hostility from a passing stranger. Nearly everything that happens happens within and between the two lead characters; and even when it is difficult (as it is most of the time for Marko) it is always tender, never violent. Maybe that's why it bores people.
