When it comes to romance movies most of us are use to seeing that story romance unfold with straight people. Thankfully did is nothing like tells a romance story with gay people and it's pretty good.
Noordzee, Texas (North Sea Texas) is about a teenage boy's search for love finds him fixated on the boy next door. The plot is pretty straightforward and little subplots. This means the story becomes complex nor does it attempt to break new ground. To the movie credit it portray gays as actual people you would actually see in the streets and is very respectful of that. The cast is fine I guess, though they never get to shine to the material expanding on it's premise or taking advantage of it's characters relationship. While it's nothing great, it certainly was a good watch. I just simply enjoy it for what it is and what it does well. While there's much to say about this movie, there's allot to enjoy.
Noordzee, Texas (North Sea Texas) is romance movie between two guys done well and avoid the offensive stereotype of gays to portray them as regular people. It's respectful, well made, and good entertainment. It worth watching no matter what gender you're into.
This movie has a very good view of how life can be miserable in low middle class families and how to deal with your differences. However, it is a very typical movie in my opinion and for me it lacks of emotion - the characters are too annoying and the very slow pace of the movie doesn't help to magically bring feelings...
