Review

Happily filled with contradictions, tall, dark and handsome Bram lives a mysterious life in Antwerp that is very different from his conservative, religious upbringing. By day he is the dutiful son and brother, but by night he is a casual drug dealer partying around town and hanging out with the very cute Kevin. Rumors fly around the neighborhood about Bram s "inclinations," so his father lays down the law that his eldest son needs to be a role model for his younger brother Furkant who s a hoodlum turned Islamic fundamentalist. Subsequently Bram flies off to Turkey to meet his future wife (who happens to be his cousin), but not without bringing his newfound friend with him. The platonic friendship with Kevin rapidly turns to a seductive love affair that will shake up everyone s old-fashioned values! At the center of Mixed Kebab, director Guy Lee Thys paints a rich picture of how race and class affect a simple thing like love in today s society and that courage and tolerance ultimately triumph over all. --Kelly Burkhardt

This is a well written and acted film.
Fred-Chet
I have enjoyed repeated viewings of this film, which is maybe a little heavy on plot elements and a little light on character development.

Bram is a young man in Belgium whose life is pulled in several different directions. Raised Muslin in a Turkish family, he is taught to honor tradition and religious rules, although his own family rarely follows them completely. He is gay, but closeted and engaged to marry a cousin who will emigrate from Turkey. Has a good job, but deals drugs on the side, and has a rocky relationship with his younger brother, who joins a radical Muslim mosque. His life becomes even more complicated when he meets Kevin, a blonde young man who identifies as heterosexual but with whom he has a definite mutual chemistry. They take a trip together to Turkey, so Bram can make arrangements with his fiancé, and events occur there that eventually force him to make some tough decisions.

This is, first and foremost, a love story between two people, having to overcome homophobia as well as their own insecurities. Nicely photographed, directed and well-acted, although (in my opinion) it drags in the beginning and a couple of places after. Dialogue is in several languages, with English (or French, if you choose) subtitles. Not rated, but would be a light R for some sexual content and partial nudity. DVD has trailer and Cannes interview with writer/director and lead actor. Four stars out of five.

I have enjoyed repeated viewings of this film, which is maybe a little heavy on plot elements and a little light on character development. Here the gay son is headed for an arranged marriage similar to some other gay themed movies, but there are enough differences to keep things interesting. I felt fewer "issues" and more character interaction whould have made the film even better.

This is a well written and acted film. All of the characters are extremely well drawn. Their cultural backgrounds are so well given that even the most unlikeable are understandable. Most viewers, I think, will find this film enjoyable and educational. Only the ending leaves one somewhat up in the air - perhaps a sequel?

very vivid reality of gay in the middle eastern family, like different setting in different country and how people react to gay and prejudice.
