Underneath all the kiddie stuff, there's real terror. It just needs to be unleashed a bit more the next time around.
"A Moment in the Reeds" is deliberately spare in all departments, heightening impact through restraint.
It is simple, but also filled with these poignant moments that explore issues that have larger implications on these men's lives.
A Moment in the Reeds uses strikingly intimate storytelling to give an important voice to the struggles of sexual and ethnic minorities in our society.
spare, raw and poetic
Considering how memorable and impassioned Mikko Makela's film is, audiences may find themselves devouring A Moment In The Reeds with similar enthusiasm. It's a strong contender for queer film of the year.
Ably portraying the awkwardness of their first time, the two young actors bring plenty of believability and humanity to their characters. You are taken in immediately by them and are invested in thier burgeoning relationship.
Makela keeps things intriguing as the dialog plays with provocative ideas and the characters grapple with their underlying beliefs.
A sensitive and insightful film, beautifully photographed by Iikka Salminen, A Moment In The Reeds is one that lingers.
A Moment in the Reeds may be tender and insightful, but it's also sexy as hell.
Sexy, idyllic, bittersweet.
