Unspoken Passion

Roni Bertubin’s Unspoken Passion shows that characters that aren’t so flashy in the beginning change almost completely through the progression of the film. Flashbacks from childhood give a little insight to how two best friends, Adong and Enzo know each other, and Melay, the girl who Adong has always had a thing for. To make ends meet, male prostitution is common, and Adong finds himself leading a secret life. We discover later that work, friendship, sex and love complicates what one thinks they know about themselves and therefore affects the choices that they make in the end. Homegrown and dramatically different, this film hits a range of emotions, and causes one to think, “Am I doing this because I want to, or that I need to?”
