An Inside Look at Gay Amsterdam

""Gay in Amsterdam"

An Inside Look at Gay Amsterdam

Amos Lassen

Amsterdam has always been one of the gayest places in Europe to visit but we seldom get to look at what the scene there really is. Finally we get to do so in "Gay in Amsterdam" from Laguna Productions and not only is it a look at the gay hot spot but the film gives a wonderful story to frame the city.
The gay freedom is the Netherlands is beautifully laid out for us with Max and Pascal, a couple which has everything going for it. They live and love together and the guys of Amsterdam envy their relationship as it seems to be so solid. However, all is not as it seems. Their domestic security is tested and torn asunder when a handsome and extremely desirable American visitor comes to town and things begin to change.
Max falls hard for the newcomer and is soon involved in a torrid affair from which there seems to be no turning back and it happened before he could understand what was happening.
Max and Pascal love each other deeply and whether that love will survive the interference is what this movie is about. As we watch the struggle of the men, we get a look at Amsterdam that only visitors to the city usually get.
The acting is exceptional and the cinematography is first class. Hugo Mestsers from HBO's "Band of Brothers" and Holland's "Dear Boys" and "Spetters" gives a brilliant performance. He is complimented by Serge-Henri Valcke who starred in the Academy Award winning "No Man's Land". So fluid is the direction that I did not feel I was just watching a movie but rather that I was part of it.
I must admit, however, that when I received the film, I was a bit puzzled by the title. I thought I would be watching a documentary and was pleasantly surprised as I watched a "movie" movie.
"Gay in Amsterdam" is a fine addition to Laguna Productions' gay offerings which include the wonderful "Los Journaleros" (The Day Laborers).
We hope to screen this film at the Arkansas GLBT film festival in Little Rock in June.

Can't Get Past the Horrible Dubbing
James E. Jagielski | 03/02/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I'll keep this short as this film doesn't deserve more. The horrible dubbing of this picture made it unwatchable. Even if you're lucky enough to be able to understand the Dutch version of the movie it is not a choice selection. Pick anything else for your movie time pleasure."
A good one to miss
Kerry from DC | DC Metro Area | 09/01/2008

"This was a difficult movie to watch. The movie has been dubbed into english but the voice overs are done poorly and the voices don't fit the characters. I thought I could get past this...but, not so much. The plot was a bit out-there and the characters were a bit predictable, decidant, and self-absorbed. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this movie..."
