Sin destino (2002) uncut
Not Rated | 1h 37min | Drama | 2 January 2007 (USA)
This is a shocking film that deals with a 15-year-old boy who rents his body to men in order to pay for his drug abuses. Fran, tired of being termed a homosexual by others, confides in his best friend and dealer David who advises him to visit Perla, a prostitute. Fran later encounters a fair-haired girl, Angelica, and is initially attracted towards her, but soon the old man who had introduced him to the rent boy lifestyle appears, which leaves Fran clueless about life, his sexual orientation and priorities.
When I watched this movie few days ago I had to admit that it is one of the most original ways to address a difficult subject. The acting was fine and trough I have read comments that the actors were not professionals I could hardly say that judging from their performance in the movie. A lot of sexual references are present in this movie as well as harsh language but with the issues it addresses this couldn’t have been avoided. The main character is a young street hustler in Mexico and by the end of the movie you will not know if you should sympathy, pity or will simply hate him even trough the question of whether he should be blamed for a single thing he does or not is not that simple to answer.
