Boy meets boy was one of the most notable LGBTQ dramas to premiere at BFI Flare: London LGBTIQ + Film Festival earlier this year, and ahead of the film’s digital streaming and DVD release next Monday (September 6), Attitude may unveil in exclusive a special clip of tender gay romance.
Spanish filmmaker Daniel Sánchez López’s feature debut stars British newcomer Matthew James Morrison and German actor Alexandros Koutsoulis as two men whose cute encounter on the streets of Berlin turns into something more with a few hours before going home.
“Before sunrise meets Weekend in the streets of Berlin when Harry, exhausted from partying for 48 straight hours in a sweaty nightclub, crosses paths with dancer Johannes, “one official synopsis read.
With 15 hours to kill before his flight home, Harry accepts Johannes’s offer to take a stroll through this bustling city. In no time, a simple cute encounter turns into something much more, where each of these men must face its own truths – and face their future. “
The recently released clip is a remarkable lesson in sober and outspoken filmmaking, focusing firmly on tiny movements and sounds as Harry and Johannes kiss, stroke and undress in silence.
