“Marco Berger wrote and directed this film about a student who lusts after his sports coach, and goes to great lengths to spend time with him in the hopes that something happens.”
   Super Macey

“Argentinean director Marco Berger follows the sunny-side up subversion of festival favourite Plan B with this utterly unexpected but completely riveting foray into slow–burn, psycho-sexual tensions.”
CineOutsider

“It is now possible for gay filmmakers to take a small cast of characters, a small crew, and explore a situation and an idea on film, thus articulating various aspects of gay men’s lives in miniature.”
