There isn't a moment in the movie you feel you've seen done quite this way before.

Barren, windswept Patagonia provides a fitting existential backdrop for Glue, the first feature by Argentina's Alexis Dos Santos that captures the adolescent experience with rare and bracing veracity.

Alexis Dos Santos's artful doodle about a boy and his seething hormones in Argentina's dreary Patagonia region that recalls some of the seminal works of the New Queer Cinema movement.

Glue is in fact similar to most people's adolescence: not without the occasional hiccough -- but what an adventure it is!

Audience Reviews for Glue

Glue (2005): "The kitten wants cuddles." - Lucas Sixteen-year old Lucas is feeling estranged from his parents, struggling to get a band together, avoiding neighborhood bullies, and coping with his desire for sex with his friends. That's enough for anyone to deal with. Shot using a hand-held with deliberate quality problems (jump cuts, black screen, and frequent out-of-focus). Plus, it appears that Natasha Braier (Cinematographer) discovered a bag of filters and couldn't resist playing with them. Praised for adding value, I found the film-techniques, although a great idea, were over used. Lucas (Nahuel Biscayart) was good. His talent carried the cast. The film location was very interesting - Patagonia, Argentina. The best part of the film was costume. I loved Lucas' t-shirts.
