A man vacationing in the country with his wife and children finds his sexuality unexpectedly challenged in director Zabou Breitman's intimate drama. Frédéric is a family man who needs a vacation. Upon arriving at his cottage in the country, Frédéric makes the acquaintance of Hugo -- the gay neighbor who resides in the adjacent cottage. A free spirit who is open about his sexuality and frequently goes skinny-dipping in the moonlight, Hugo seems to be everything that Frédéric isn't. Soon, the tension between Hugo and Frédéric is palpable. Yet, while they may be at odds over their opposite lifestyles, the two men are also obviously attracted to one another and soon begin to flirt heavily. But Hugo's taunting of hopeless romantic Frédéric begins bordering on cruel when it becomes obvious that Frédéric is jealous of his new lover.

It looks like it was shot on a camcorder as a school project, the dialog written by someone not familiar with actual speech patterns and performed by the local community college's drama department. Trainwreck.

Byron B (mx) wrote: With the recent release of Jurassic World my favorite local movie chain Cleveland Cinemas wanted to re-screen the first Jurassic Park film with the midnight early release of Jurassic World to follow. The studio did not consent because the Jurassic trilogy was scheduled to re-air on TV in the week leading up to the new release. So, The Valley of Gwangi was cleverly chosen instead. A scientist from the Cleveland Museum of Natural History also spoke about archaeology at the screening. My schedule prevented me from seeing the movie on the big screen, so, ultimately I watched this at home on a library DVD. Jurassic Park is about the island theme park where the plan is that the public will pay to see dinosaurs brought back to life. Gwangi, brought to life by special effects titan Ray Harryhausen, is about Wild West show performers capturing ancient monsters to display to the paying public at a rodeo arena. There is even a professor character who is quite similar to Attenborough's Jurassic Park founder, although this professor is more interested in scientific study rather than exploitation. The film is based on sketches that Harryhausen had in his possession from an unrealized project that his mentor Willis O'Brien began. It has the feel of a Spaghetti Western since it was filmed in Spain with an international cast. Spain stands in for Mexico, but instead of being a period western it is set in modern times, the 1960s. There were some cheesy moments with the Mexican gypsies and the horse in the Wild West show that jumps into a shallow pool of water. Also when Harryhausen mimics the movement of a recognizable animal like the tiny prehistoric horse or the elephant the effect is not as impressive as when he animates creatures that require more imagination. In general, I truly enjoyed the action, characters, and dialog that bring this fantastic tale into being.

I enjoyed Goldblum's cameo, but there is little else aside to keep the audience entertained. They do not make the most of the Parisian landscape, or add real depth to the script.

This is an epic adventure of humanity. I must underline that both the whites and the blacks had one trump card to avert disaster and they both kept it alive by luck and by will. This card was Mandela, of course. We get to understand the silliness and insanity of racism. And I mean white/black, white/white, or black/black racisms. This may extend to nationalism, religiousisms, or other isms that separate groups.
