Director David Lambert had plenty of success with the gay-themed arthouse flick Beyond The Walls in 2012, and now he’s back with All Yours, which takes a look at the type of gay ‘romance’ that doesn’t often get looked at in films.
The movie premiered at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, and here’s the synopsis from that fest: ‘Young Argentine Lucas arrives in a small Belgian town to visit gay bakery owner Henry, who fell in love with him through the internet; Lucas strutted his erotic stuff online in the hope of securing a better future for himself. Henry buys him a plane ticket to Europe, expecting in return that Lucas will not only share his bed but also help out at the bakery. However, their ideas about living together differ greatly. On top of that, Lucas gets to know a Canadian woman named Audrey and her son Jeff.
‘This unusual starting point for director Lambert serves his aim of delving deeply into our interpersonal relationships, our wishes and desires, and the understandable need for a supportive environment. The filmmaker succeeded in humorously describing and distinguishing the film’s characters and in aptly portraying their fragility and inner uncertainty. The bold musical and visual elements round out the picture’s compelling atmosphere, and are among the most telling aspects of the talented Belgian filmmaker’s unmistakable style.’
Breaking Glass Pictures has picked up the movie for release in the US, and you can take a look at the trailer below. [Read more…]
