Product Description

In this sexy, romantic, and uncomfortably chilling tale of love and deception from first time director Marcelo Briem Stamm, two men meet in a chat room but when they eventually meet in person and the sexual sparks are hot. While sex is satisfying and often, it is their collective problems with intimacy, trust and the fear of being hurt that make them hesitant to commit fully. As their relationship develops, both reveal secrets from their past but these revelations may be real, imagined or outright lies.
Special Feature: Trailer.

Has more twists and turns than Grindr in a crowded bar on a Friday night. --Edge Publications

Customer Reviews

Very well acted.
Van Gonima
The acting and the actions are all pretty stilted and as they movie beats along pretty slowly you begin to get think that things are going to end badly.
Stacey Adam
The film began as though the storyline would make sense.

Format: DVD
This is gay but it is really a thriller from Argentina, as mentioned in my lack lustre title. We meet the rather dashing Manuel who has been on an online dating chat room. And it is just a pick up site. Well he gets `chatting' to Julio and they agree to meet despite Julio having no on line profile. Then he brings him back and after a lot of pauses and describing how they have been hurt by selfish lovers before in their lives, they finally go for the action bits.

After the bedroom `eurhythmics', they decide they must be in love and are going to run away together, very romantically by coach. However, Julio seems to have far too much interest in Manuel's savings account and security arrangements than would be seen as normal and soon we all start to realise that something very wrong is going on.

To say anymore would be a plot spoiler and there is a fair bit more of the story so please do not be put off. This is a small budget film and most of the action takes place in Manuel's flat. The beginning is a bit on the slow side too and might have been done to build emotion, empathy or tension, but for me it did drag a bit. The good news is that once it does start to get moving it does so very fast and it did have me surprised.

It is not a long film either at 80 minutes but for the reasons mentioned above it felt longer. It is in Spanish with good sub titles. The cast are very good indeed, and we do have some frontal nudity but very fleeting, there is some bedroom encounters too but that is not the raison d'être of this film, it is first and foremost a thriller. I wanted to give this 3 stars but it is probably 3.5 so am rounding it up as I thought the ending was done in a very good way indeed.

This film is a delight for any viewer who is a fan of Hitchcock films. The very clever plot and excellent performances by the actors create scene after scene of almost unbearable suspense. A superb script brought to life by two young but very capable actors who know how to generate tension in the viewer.

(see upbeat UPDATE at end after second viewing)

I loved the first part of this movie because it was very well written and acted, but the sexual attraction between Julio and Miguel was completely unconvincing. Weekend is much better in that regard (and in every other way too - there are too many superficial similarities to avoid comparing the two movies).

Julio and Miguel were naked a lot, and the two actors are very, very attractive as individuals, but I never believed in them as a couple. The dialog was sexy, but the physical interaction between them was so tightly choreographed that it was more like ballet than sex. I found myself wishing for more talk and less sex, which is a first. Their conversations were fascinating; their sex was cold and phony.

The story was pretty stupid, especially when it turned psycho at the end, but no more so than classic psycho thrillers like Psycho - realism is not a hallmark of the genre.

For acting and intelligent dialog, Solo is a definite winner. I'm amazed that this is the only feature-length film either actor has made so far; they're both extraordinarily good looking and talented. But the story is overwrought, the sex unbelievable, and the ending tiresome and very predictable.

UPDATE: I watched it again and liked it much more the second time. Knowing the ending makes me appreciate the writing even more than I already did. It is very intelligent and cleverly constructed. The sex is still unbelievable and cold, but everything else is really good. I'm adding another star.

This movie is about two men who meet in a chat room, and then meet in person. The dialogue is all about trust, and within and around all the sex is a discussion about being honest and appreciating honesty. Plans are made to escape from everything...to catch a plane (or a bus) to new opportunities. The ending was quite a surprise. This movie is in Spanish with subtitles.

In the beginning, I thought this was going to be a decent production seeing as how there were subtitles for the song in the beginning; something that is rarely seen in subtitled films. Then, it just turned creepy. What kind of guy says he will not meet another (online dating) guy who does not have a profile picture, turns around and does meet him, (immaturely) tells the stranger he is in love with him and then strings him along with psychological mind games?

Just as the viewer's mind is convinced, after minutes (that seem like hours) of boring, go nowhere, dialog to not trust the stranger, we are literally hit over the head with what other reviewers here call the bizarre plot twist; but you can really see it coming if you put all the flashbacks together (as the film does toward the ending just to make it crystal clear to the viewer).

The drama and suspense here is that most would be careful to invite a stranger into their home for fear that, not knowing anything whatsoever about him, he may rob or even kill you. Derangement is in the eye of the beholder. This film is a great reminder of why people should exercise caution when using online dating!

Four stars for the suspense, but minus 1 star for making us suffer through the pain and agony of the stupid, dysfunctional and boring dialog in the beginning before getting to the point where we even care for either of the characters.

Sad that subtitles were NOT created for the ending song; the song during the final scene that runs *after* the final credits. Other than the director wanting to show us that this dude was indeed "solo" (alone), if anyone can tell me any other significance of the campsite along a very dirty river in that last and final scene, please leave a comment.
