Critic Reviews for Nico and Dani (Krámpack)
Filmmaker Gay nimbly navigates the raging waters of burgeoning sexuality.
For a movie that has been praised for its sensitive realism, Nico and Dani takes some large liberties.
Could be useful to a confused teenager, suggesting that we all have to choose our own paths in life.
Manages to be both joyful and unnerving in its unflinching portrayal of emerging sexuality.
Although films about adolescents stumbling urgently toward sexual self-identity are plentiful, most are put to shame by the delicacy, poignancy, and honesty of Nico and Dani.
Audience Reviews for Nico and Dani (Krámpack)
An interesting "coming of age" story.
Does I good job of showing the struggles of coming to terms with your sexuality. The struggle between exploring your true feelings and coming to terms with your feelings based on that exploration and simply doing what "society" expects of you to spite what you amy or may not be feeling.
And more importantly it shows just how ridiculous it is to think that you have it all figured out based on one or two (early) experiences in life and how important it is to be open and honest with yourself and those who are close to you about what feels right for you.
Sadly, the film ends on a rather flat and incomplete note - but for the most part it was rather touching. (No pun intended!)
Of the many gay movies I've seen lately, this Spanish one felt the most "real" to me. It's about two 17 year old boys exploring their sexuality, one of them being hetero- and one of them being homo-. It explores how confusing and difficult it can be when the lines between friendship and sex blur. I'm sure it's something many adolescents can relate to when they're trying to figure themselves out. It's hard for me to describe this without regurgitating what other critics have already said about this film. I'll just say it's a refreshing take that doesn't engage in stereotypes.
Two lifelong friends in Barcelona deal with love, particularly t he unrequited kind. Young Dani discovers his feelings for his friend, and struggles to make sense of it.
