directed by Cesc Gay
Spain 2000

"Cesc Gay has captured the spirit of youth, puberty, sexual innocence and experimentation in Nico and Dani, a  film dealing primarily with the inescapable lack of choice anyone has around sexual preference. Two closely bonded friends find a riff in their perspective sexual longings. One seeks females, the other seeks him. Subtly portrayed in an honest heartfelt fashion, this is a modern and wholesome look at homosexuality and growing up that I have not seen on the screen yet. I highly applaud this story ( taken from a play ) that frankly deals with, until recently, a taboo subject: Youths and sex."

Great disc from New Yorker!... Solid anamorphic image, accurate colors, deep blacks and full of extras. Film-sourced, there does not appears to be any color/contrast adjustment, no strobbing whites and no edge enhancement. Super film and super DVD!.  out of
