This film tells a nice story of two guys from different worlds spending a bucolic summer together. The slow realization in the film is they are from two very different worlds, one from Finland, the other from Syria but they happen to meet in the most unusual place.There aren't any missteps, no tragedy, no homophobia, no artificial "angst" of will they-won't they?, nothing endemic to too many gay romance films. This film was beautifully shot and superbly acted. The sex scenes showed a little more than the norm but were still tastefully done and did not veer into the pornographic. These were two grown adult males with no "issues" who were definitely in love. My only sadness with the film was the ending since I always root for love, however, the ending "made sense" based on the narrative. It's a combination of subtitles and English so it's not hard to follow the story. I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could only because when the ending came, the movie just cut to black with nothing else said.🤔
Filmed very well with a strong cast and good acting, but the plot contains strong far-left bias and propaganda surrounding sexuality and immigration, failing to give the justice to the open views held by so many Finns and their warm and open hospitality.
