Or, "Why Must I Be a Teenager in Love — the Gay Remix." Two beautiful adolescent boys with no fathers and lousy mothers — blonde Pim's is a floozy who'd rather be touring on the accordion circuit, while dark-haired Gino's is neurotic and frail — find comfort in each other's pubescent arms. (The camera spends plenty of time gazing at their gently shadowed torsos.) Director Bruno Defurne draws you into Pim's secret world of schoolboy love — never before has a crusty sock become such an icon of devotion — and the spare world of the Belgian coast gives new resonance to cutaway shots of swaying grasses and shifting sands. But after Gino turns 18 and decides to go straight, the fever subsides, and we can only mope along with Pim toward a questionable conclusion. English subtitles. (2011) — Matthew Lickona
