A wonderful Dutch movie for today, for Valentine's Day. A sexually awakening gay teen athlete finds himself in a budding relationship with his mutually attracted relay race teammate.
Jongens (Boys, 2014), directed by Mischa Kamp, with Gijs Blom and Ko Zandvliet as the main actors.
This movie tells the story of Sieger (Blom), a sporty, rather quiet teen boy who discovers love during the summer holidays. Sieger is training in the new athletics team for the national relay championships and meets the unpredictable Marc (Zandvliet). The friendship that develops seems nothing out of the ordinary, but Sieger secretly harbours stronger feelings for Marc.
Love always wins!
