I don't understand the Oscar nomination for Best Picture for this film. There just wasn't much of a story here, certainly not enough for the time allotted to tell it. Two young men fall in love, one is seventeen, the other a little older but it is not going to be a committed relationship. So there is some point to that as explained at the end of the film by the father of the 17 year old, how great it was that they were able to experience this kind of love even temporarily and so forth. Overall, the film was slow and mostly boring but had beautiful actors and location.
