"Versatil": award winning gay short film from Spain about white-hot young manhood
Carlos Ocho has posted his “Cortometraje” (“gay short film”) “Versatil” (“Versatile”).
In Barcelona (apparently) two strong young cis-gay males work through their initial passion into starting a relartionship, but have to work through their physical expectations first. The couple is played by Eudald Font and Christian Escudero.
Because the film is more explicit than usual, I decided not to embed it. Here is the link. It would be likely to be rated "R".
The film runs fourteen minutes. It strikes me that a film like this could do well if it took more time to build tension among the two lovers, but then it woudn’t be a short film.
The film won awards at the Barcelona Film Festival and many LGBT festivals (esp. Chicago).
I’ll embed something PG-13, “Perks of Being a Gay Couple” (2 minutes, Buzz Feed Video). Eduardo Sanchez-Ubanell makes a cameo.
