Testosterone (Testosteroni) (2004)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Testosterone is a poorly executed attempt at film noir that follows good-looking yet bland characters through an ultimately aimless plot.

Moreton shows plenty of ambition in his second feature, but somewhere in the space between page and screen, he lost the thread.

Filled with pretty faces and empty logic, David Moreton's noir-wannabe Testosterone flounders about, doing everything but flutter its eyelashes in an attempt to distract us from its lack of substance.

The movie's primary interest seems to be in following several good-looking men wherever they care to meander.

A pointless, wandering tale of obsession that seems to have little purpose beyond showing that gay characters can be in a messed-up movie too.

[Relies] on a creaky plot and gaping lapses in plausibility.

A tonal car wreck -- the equivalent of Chuck Norris crashing though the pages of an Isabel Allende novel.

Audience Reviews for Testosterone (Testosteroni)

** (out of four) Dean (David Sutcliffe) is thrown into confusion when his lover (Antonio Sabato Jr) goes oyt for some cigarettes and never returns. Dean turns depressed and is unable to handle his everyday life. Trying to bring some closure, he sets off for Argentina, hoping to find his lover and find out what really happened. Fair acting. Fair dialogue. Nothing overly memorable here.

David Sutcliffe gives a good performance and Braga is wonderfully ice cold but the picture drags and makes little sense.
