Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Directed by Lionel Baier (Garçon Stupide) this sweet, oddball story deftly shuffles between sex, family love and adventure with comedic grace.
From all outward appearances, Lionel is a happy gay man with a great career and a modern, open minded family who accepts his devoted lover Serge as one of their own.
Then Lionel discovers he has Polish ancestors. Suddenly he s immersing himself in all things Polish: food, language, etc. Things really heat up when he meets a pretty Polish immigrant facing deportation and decides to marry her.
Taking charge, Lucy (Lionel s sister) borrows Lionel s company car for a road trip to Poland to discover the family roots. Once there, Lionel rediscovers his seemingly lost homosexuality with the handsome Polish boy, Stan, and along the way, he finds the true meaning of family.

What a surprising treasure this film is! Congrats to Water Bearer for bringing eclectic "STEALTH" to USA audiences. If I could rate it a "10", I would. Everything about it - the extremely personal twist n' turn plot, the competent and attractive actors, the crisp European cinematography, the gorgeous Ravel music weave pure unadulterated magic. Hey, the dialogue is French/Polish with English subtitles. I usually run for the provincial hills at such a disclosure but in this case the bilingual factor is (for whatever reason) an unexpected PLUS. In so many ways "STEALTH" slyly seduces you to sit up and take notice. And take notice you will.

Format: DVD
"Stealth" is a clever and highly amusing story about arrested development and non-lethal obsession. Lionel and Lucie are a twenty-something brother and sister pair living in Lausanne, Switzerland. They are both attractive, well-employed, have supportive and accepting parents and are involved in affectionate relationships.

Lionel is gay, has a handsome and attentive boyfriend, but is bored and antsy about the future. Lucie is straight, has a hunky Italian boyfriend who loves her, but is forced to confront the future of her relationship when she finds that she is pregnant.

Lionel's long-time interest in a family connection with Poland turns into an obsession when he meets a pretty Polish au pair with visa problems. His decision to marry the girl starts a chain reaction that causes him to break up with his long-suffering boyfriend and ends with his sister "kidnapping" him and taking off for Poland to exorcise her brother's Polish demon.

The sibling road trip is marked by some hilarious dialogue and a series of misadventures. Lionel is beaten up when he intervenes in a domestic argument. His enraged attacker tries to destroy their borrowed car at 70 MPH, inflicting further damage on Lionel. Bleeding and dirty, Lionel encounters an angel of mercy--hunky and friendly Stanislaus--in a public restroom. The very sympathetic (and conveniently French-speaking) Stanislaus takes the Swiss pair under his wing and a romance between the two guys blooms quickly.

But the road trip must continue, and things go rapidly south when they leave "oasis Stanislaus" and head for Warsaw to track down the Polish ancestor who is the obstensible reason for the trip. They very quickly have their car stolen along with most of their money.

Format: DVD
Amiable but rather pointless film about a somewhat estranged brother and sister discovering their Polish heritage during an impromptu trip from Switzerland to Poland. This movie can't seem to decide whether it wants to be a gay comedy, a family drama or a road movie, and so doesn't succeed in being any of these. This is obviously a labor of love on the part of writer/director/actor Lionel Baier who stars as the brother (who also happens to be named Lionel Baier), but it fails to engender much in the way of interest for the audience.

Good performances by Baier and Natacha Koutchoumov as the sister, but not much else to recommend it.

I decided to watch "Stealth" after I had read those two very positive reviews posted on Amazon. And? Yet again I had this feeling that I must have been watching another film than those two men.
Even if the main plot is quite interesting, I got bored and tired after first 30 minutes. The director seems to be wishy-washy about the way his film should be like. I am not sure if this is a gay-theme comedy or a drama or a thriller (yep, thanks to the music in some scenes). Btw, once you introduce music in a scene, it should help to build up the atmosphere, to enhance it. In this case we have for example a scene where main character talks to his father (about nothing horrific, plain chit-chat), but the music in the backround could have served well in every thiller.
In my opinion is one of the movies that you forget about while watching it. Not totally bad, but not good either.
