Matias and Jeronimo have known each other since childhood. During the holiday before they begin high school, their friendship takes a new turn when they both experience their sexual awakening. However, Matias's father forces them apart when he takes a new job far away. Distance and family contempt for homosexuality leads Matias to deny his friend, and ultimately, himself. More than ten years later, Matias returns to his old town for Carnival with his girlfriend, where he unexpectedly runs into Jeronimo. Feelings between the two men slowly reappear, leading to a long-repressed awakening. But at what cost?

DVD SPECIAL FEATURES: Interview with the director and cast, and a stills gallery

In this gently absurdist comedy, Gonzalo Tamayo finds himself navigating the baffling bureaucracy of the Catholic Church when he attempts to formally renounce his faith. Tomayo soon discovers that leaving the church is much easier said than done. This coming-of-age satire is told with a gentle nod to the Cohen Brothers' sensibility. The Apostate touches meaningfully on the crisis within the Catholic Church; a crisis that centers on the conflict between tradition and modernity.

DELUXE DVD EDITION: Includes two full length features by Director Federico Veirjo - Acne and A Useful Life (both Spanish with English Subtitles)

 

REVIEW:

"Excellent" - The Hollywood Reporter

Summer in Berlin. Jonas is planning a trip through the little known area of the Uckermark in preparation for a photography project. He invites his best friend, Phillip, to come along. They haven't met since the time they spent together in London. So they pack up their Mercedes camper and take off across uncharted territory, stopping whenever they see something they like, taking pictures and generally enjoying a laid-back road trip. The fact that Phillip is gay has never been an issue for either of them. When they pick up a hitchhiker named Boris, however, who shows Jonas some interesting spots and starts to make moves on Phillip, the friendship of the two starts to fray. Maybe three's a crowd after all? By the end of the summer, things between Jonas and Phillip won't ever be the same again.

From the acclaimed Director of Pulsion, The Kiss and the Sex Stories Trilogy comes a new film destined to become an erotic classic. An Endless Night tells the story of Lucie, a girl who wakes up at a hotel room naked, and alone. She had spent the night drinking with friends, but her memory is playing a dangerous game she simply can t seem to remember how the night ended. Who took her to that hotel? And, more important, what happened there? She asks a friend for help and together they attempt to assemble the puzzle only to find out that the truth turns out to be a lot more intricate than they would have ever thought. Ovidie is back, and proves once again that she is the master of female French erotica. No one does it better.

Modern women don't wait around for pleasure to find them they go and get it! Florence is a woman who is anxious to understand and experience the intense orgasms she has only dreamed of. Sex with her husband Antoine is passionate, but lacks the sensuality that she craves. So unbeknownst to him, she enrolls in a weekend seminar at the Manoir de l'Amour. But amidst the anger, need, elation, confusion and discovery ... fulfillment will ultimately prevail. Directed by Sophie Bramly, founder of the respected SoFemmes Productions, this French tale of self discovery will ring true for many modern women. Following the hit film X-femmes, Manor of Love shows aspects of female sexuality (and the great divide between public and private perception of it) in a brand new way resulting in one of the smartest, most sensual films of the year!

From emerging Indian director Partho Sen-Gupta, Sunrise centers around Social Services officer Lakshman Joshi, whose bad past and current reality begin to converge as he investigates a kidnapping ring within the rain-soaked back alleys and seedy nightclubs of urban Mumbai. Featuring a great performance from Adil Hussain as the worse-for-wear Lakshman and full of stylish, noir-tinged visuals, Sunrise is both a riveting psychological drama and an invigorating, nerve racking thriller that will chill and enchant you.
