The young men are healthy and beautiful from the waist up, but that's all you see. Nothing is explicit, and the movie is EXCRUCIATINGLY SLOW. There's a bittersweet ending, and that's about it. Sex is few, far between and mostly implied. There's not much dialogue, and the participants are an unhappy lot. The movie is picturesque when it wants to be, but there again, those scenes few and far between. The movie's makers seem to think that the (slightly) taboo subject matter is enough to base a movie on. It's not. If sex is something to make you happy, the characters don't appear to realize it.
