This movie was great. As the story unfolded, it just got better and better. The psychological landscape was thrilling. I was thinking about it for days after I saw it. It's a shame that people will reduce this to merely another 'gay' movie when in fact it's a well made film all around. See it.

I consider myself very open-minded, but I really did not care for this movie. I was expecting "Hitchcock", but it never developed. I think the sex scenes distracted too much from the story, as if the director was grabbing for straws because of a weak plot. I would have been less comfortable if there was less emphasis on the sex scenes and more on the murder plot and the development of the main characters. Personally, I am not used to such overt sexuality in a public setting. My conservatism made it uncomfortable. Yet, to be fair, I don't know if there would be the same reaction from a couple of the opposite sex having sex on camera as a couple of the same sex. It's different and I was caught off-guard, but still, I was hoping more to develop on the murder plot. I like the complexity of Henri and Franck's relationship and I liked that it was kept vague. I did like the cinematography. There was no music, which made it different. I could say I was a voyeur and a witness to a crime.

I enjoyed this film. LOVED the main characters development and the finale wasn't expected. Throughout the film you saw glimmers of hope and redemption for each character only to be left with a closing that only a French director could pull off. Brings to light the cruelty in "cruising"
