Hidden Kisses

Essential Opinion: Hidden Kisses (Baisers cachés)

Gay cinema has had its fair share of coming-out films. But Didier Bivel’s motion picture proves that there is much more left to explore when it comes to generic LGBT themes and that there is room for unique and brilliant storytelling in each of these common queer tropes. Hidden Kisses takes the viewer into a world monopolized by homophobic people whose vitriol and downplayed hatred might not seem representative of today’s society.
