Alonso Duralde The Advocate First-time director Muscardin shows a sure hand in dealing with touchy material, and she keeps the pace zipping along during the film’s all-too-brief 80-minute running time. May 19, 2022 Full Review Arwa Haider Time Out It's actually hard to warm to the stuffy, aloof Claudio, but the film evokes the claustrophobia of being in thrall to daily medication, and makes some moving observations while remaining refreshing non-judgmental. Jan 26, 2006 Full Review Jon Popick Planet S Magazine Loose ends are tied up way too neatly at the end, but Muscardin's direction, especially where she chooses to shoot some things out of focus, shows great promise. Oct 4, 2002 Full Review Brandon Judell PopcornQ It's up to you to decide whether two consenting adults with two different HIV statuses who knowingly have unprotected sex are idiots? Monsters? Or just free spirits? May 22, 2002 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member With a protagonist who comes across as rather self-destructive, the audience is left to root for, what?, love to conquer all? Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Definitely expected more out of this Italian film. However, most of the film I just kept wondering "where is this gooingggg???" Had a few good things within it, but overall it didn't have much of an impact. Sadly blah. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member I would like to know what is your opinion about! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Lackluster, predictable, shabby... Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member WEIRD MOVIE... is all I can think of after watching this. The acting leaves a lot to be desired, and although the plot is interesting, the characters are not fully developed so we don't really get to feel the way they're feeling or at least what they are supposed to make us feel. I found it extremely slow at times and sometimes the behaviour of the characters just didn't make any sense at all. I can't say I would recommend this movie unless you don't have anything else to watch. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member 6.5/10. Heavy going but very well acted, sensitively directed and nicely filmed. Well written, but a bit talky at times. Not too long, well paced. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
