Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This well-received contemporary drama was based on a novel by Gerald Reve. Hugo Netsers and Hans Dagelet star as, respectively, a middle-aged writer and a restless youth. These two opposites attract, and a gay romance blossoms. Dagelet draws Netsers out of his shell, and the two go on the prowl for new adventures. The film deftly blends fantasy and reality while weaving its way to an intriguing conclusion. The original Dutch title was Lieve Jongens.
