Dated for Modern Standards
Lieve yongens is not the easiest film too watch. Being filmed in 1980 it is already a bit dated. Not from the nudity scenes, of which there are plenty, but from the not too well preserved stills, the form of the bodies, and the cinematography, normally taking the subjects from afar, typical of films from the seventies filmed ins Europe (its Dutch). The movie tells the story of Wolf (Hugo Metsers) an aging writer (but still with good looks and body) trying to seduce Woelrat/Muskrat (Hans Dagelet) a younger boy lover of a much elder person. He does it through fantasy. Telling erotic and frequently sado-masochistic stories of homoerotic tales to Woelrat he succeeds, to a point.
For the time of filming, the film is very bold, giving lots of candy eye to persons that presently aren’t the pattern of looks, but have their charm. The subtitles run fast but, if you can cope with that, it’s a film that worth seeing, at least to show what of most advanced was filmed during nearly four decades ago.
I'm not kidding, I thought this was terrible. The story is supposedly about an alcoholic, unstable writer and his relationship with two younger men. I say "supposedly," because for all practical purposes there is no plot---these relationships are never explored in any depth at all. What we see is the writer acting like a complete jerk at all times (really, I've seldom seen such an unlikeable character), interspersed with random fantasy sequences that he conjures up (being a writer and all, he has quite an imagination), as he tries to seduce one of the other men. Holy cow, this was awful.
There's plenty of casual nudity, and I'll admit the men are attractive in their own separate ways. But even if that is your thing, this film isn't worth watching for it. Try something else---anything else.
The picture quality of the DVD is abysmal---looks like it was transferred from an old VHS copy, which in turn was taken from a damaged print. (I'm talking about dirt on the film, splices in the print resulting in missing frames, the works.) The only "special feature" is a still gallery---which is just a handful of random frame grabs from the print itself.
Avoid if at all possible.
