I read Froster's comment, and I admit I was a little worried. I keep an open mind when it comes to LGBT films. I borrowed Land of Storms and although I agree with that it does not compare to Brokeback Mountain, but this film is actually well done in its own way. There isn't much dialogue at times, and so a lot of interpretation is based off of the character's expressions, so you need to pay attention to that. I really liked the romance between Szabi and Aron. I don't want to spoil this, but I feel my next description is most likely a very, very big spoiler. I was looking for a romantic tragedy, and by chance, Land of Storms was my movie. I could not help but feel sad watching Aron's struggle with his own feelings for Szabi, and that internal struggle that many LGBT identified people go through. And of course the townsfolk do not make it any easier for Aron to decide what his true feelings are. I won't go into much more detail, but I honestly recommend this film, not because of the homoeroticism that is depicted beautifully, but because of how the actors portrayed their brief yet amazing romance.

what to say to not give it away.....I liked it but have been seeing a lot of gay interest subtitled movies lately. it was good...not great, but enjoyable. There were times it was slow and like many others somewhat easy to see where and what will happen. I also get mixed up when the Europeans call soccer football but that is just me. Not for the young as it is slow and a lot of reading but good.

Oh lordy, I borrowed this, and another Gay title from Eastern Europe (Poland), called “In the Name of…”, but in fact, I could write a single review for both. Which is: repression is a bad, bad thing. Both feature Catholicism as an oppressive force, and both also feature Homophobia, hazing, bad parenting, and lots of alcohol. If I may comment, “Land of Storms” has the hotter erotic fumbling, and “In the Name of…” has more on its mind. But really, both lag way behind “Brokeback Mountain” in terms of resonance and skill. That film was so momentous that these small, state-funded pictures seem to be mere ripples from that tsunami. However, now we see those waves lapping the borders of Eastern Europe….let’s see what happens when they reach the shores of India or Malaysia.
