4.0 out of 5 stars Compelling yet violent story of lust and love, August 21, 2012
This review is from: Twisted Romance (DVD)
Roberto is a gay teen who has been living with his mother and sister in the suburbs of Buenos Aires. When he meets an older man, Raúl, he jumps at the chance to live with him, even though the man is a selfish and abusive lover. Roberto is in love, and hopes that he can change Raúl over time, even bringing him home to meet his mother and sister.

Things start to fall apart when Roberto gets together with Cesar, a young man from Spain, whom he meets online. Raúl finds out about it, and becomes more abusive and violent, perhaps to the point of murder. He also fears that Raúl will hurt his family if he tries to leave him.

Obviously, this is a very dark film, with graphic violence throughout. The acting is fairly good, and it is well photographed (The screener DVD I was sent had some issues with "tiling" in some scenes, but I assume this won't be a factor in the full DVD release.) The film is in Spanish with English subtitles, and the latter are difficult to follow, in the more dialogue-intensive scenes. Unexpected ending, worth a look. Four stars out of five.
