Product Description

Argentine director Marco Berger repurposes the conventions of a Shakespeare-styled comedy in his clever, witty and poetic feature film debut. Bruno is dumped by his girlfriend; behind a calm, indifferent expression, his mind plans a cold, sweet vengeance. He befriends her new boyfriend Pablo, with the idea of eroding the couple either by introducing Pablo to another woman or by seducing him himself. Thus emerges Plan B, a perilous romantic journey that calls his own sexuality into question.

Plan B is a captivating movie about feelings and the struggle to be honest, at least to yourself about them. An amazingly complex matter we all go through many, many times in life. Skillfully directed and edited by the Argentinean first timer Marco Berger, the film is an emotional statement of sexual confusion, artistically created by a team of young dedicated and intelligent friends. Two other amazing films comes to mind after watching this extraordinary work of art; Alexander Sokurov's Mother and Son and the young and talented Romanian Corneliu Porumboiu's Politist, Adjectiv.

This film is not for everyone, but bright heterosexual people will find it very honest and even valuable. You just do not know what will they do next and will question why are these two nice straight guys get it on? Because sexuality is complex by nature and societies made it even more difficult for them to express what they are feeling and Marco Berger knows that. It seems like the Kinsey Scale is hard at work in this film, where the numbers they belong is keep shifting, but as a spectator, never for a moment lost interest or joy in the beautifully composed scenes especially when they are at sleep or just standing and waiting for something to happen naturally. Your finger might be on the fast-forward side of the remote control, but if you are a true film lover "you will not! touch that button." The joy and artistry are coming from these long, beautiful and important takes and cuts. The film takes its time to let those feelings and expressions do the work, so we the audience get into the characters and almost feel their pain or joy.

One has to be very ambitious and a fanatic Tarkovsky fan to be able to make this stunning expressionist film and Marco Berger, I suspect, is both.

In a time of bullying and gay teen suicide, I think this movie has a particularly important message.

An open mind and the experimental spirit of a 12 year old boy is all you need to find your true self as an adult. What an incredible world we would live in if grown men weren't afraid of what comes after a very close friendship.

Sure, Bruno starts down the road for all the wrong reasons--it's a plan to break up his former girlfriend from her new boyfriend. Bruno decides to get close to the new boyfriend--Pablo.

What follows is the quick maturation of Bruno, who I believes decides early on he can't hate the new boyfriend and then finds a real friendship developing. The long, drawn out, and slow sequences of silence are the times the mind of the characters needs to think and reflect and try to figure out what's going on. Those uncomfortable moments of silence for viewers directly reflects the same torturous silence moments the characters endure. Those are times of indecision...not knowing whether to retreat or move forward.

The times Pablo and Bruno shared a bed...when Bruno woke up first and took glances at Pablo...probably wanting to reach out and touch him but holding himself back. Those are the times of heartbreaking indecision--to touch or not.

If men could just carry their 12 year old spirits throughout life.....

First, let me say...if you watch television and are used to three minute snippets of script, or you are a passive viewer who needs to be spoon fed every single nuance that is in a film...then this is not the film for you. If, however, you like to dwell in what the characters are saying with their eyes, feel the energy passing between the two characters and get wrapped up in the subtext of thoughts which the actors protray...then see/buy this film.

Truly it is cinema in the European sense of the word. Texture, depth and a spirit of humanity are elements that the director brings to play as the characters each find out who they are and what motivates them. Coupled with a modern, nonchalant acceptance/ambivalence towards gay lifestyle in the film, the characters ultimately find themselves and realize their destinies.

It is about time that a gay themed film finally has characters who don't hate themselves or act like ninny's. Also, it is refreshing to see a film where there is a happy ending with no one killing themselves or walking off into the sunset stoically. More so the pity that our American directors can't bring to the screen anything close to what their European and South American counterparts have been presenting lately. It is not always about the money.

As Norma Desmond said..."We didn't need dialog. We had faces." Well they certainly have them in Argentina.

Yo.....let me get something out of the way right up front. If you don't think the ending 4 minute scene makes your viewing time more than worth it, then I'll eat my ticket stub, AND tell you that you're not the gay romantic you'd like to think you are.

The Big Question addressed by this movie is....Will "Plan B" backfire? And since we're given seemingly "Dyed in the Wool" Hetereos as our 2 leads, it's a valid one. Just know, however, that this viewer has never seen a "straight guys falling for each other" story which felt and seemed more real than this (well, maybe in novels). And what really stumps me is HOW they got such intangible feelings to come across on film! That's a Biggie. Now a WARNING: Don't be mislead by viewers who say nothing "seems" to be happening in this movie. The fact is, for most of us, it'll take time to sink in that IT has been happening right before our eyes all along; we just weren't "recognizing" it. So when several of those long (in time taken) shots occur, showing one or another of our leads standing alone, staring off into space....or sitting by himself, gazing at nothing......BUT then this silly smile starts to appear on his face.....or you hear the guy start whispering funny or surprised little comments to himself......THEN is when you pick up on what all this is about. You suddenly realize what these two are thinking and agonizing over: "What's the hell's happening to me?"......."How come I'm feeling this way?"......."No way this can be real!"......."Well, what the F--- do I do now?!"

So, with all that out of the way, here's a little bit of what your having been patient will bring you: There's a written confession of love.....there's a face to face admission of love. There's some hurt.....there's some tears.
