Taekwondo (2016)

If you want to appreciate male beauty then this is your canvas: the torso, the legs, the chest, the thighs; everything is here. This movie is about the art of capturing male beauty in its finest hue. It is slow-paced to make you absorb the beauty. Moments of silence really gives you the boner because it is in that crevice that you appreciate the chin, the teeth, the smiles, the suspense and the beauty.

This movie is about men. Forget Grindr!

It is one thing to want to fuck a man, and it is another to look at him and REALLY appreciate his beauty: the way he walks, talks, carries himself around other men; the way he is when he is the most free, a human and an animal; when he walks naked in the house and lazy on the lawn. It is not just his dick or ass anymore, it is him, the person, the human being, the perfections and the imperfections. And then you realize you have fallen in love not with his instruments but with him. The person.

This is what Marco Berger and Martín Farina have done for the gays and the men who are not afraid to love men.

The men in this work of art are just breathtaking; the perfect dose for gay men in need of some Latin heat. It is an Argentinean film so you really get what Argentina has to offer in terms its accent and its  men: the Arab-looking, the Spanish-looking, the Italian-looking, the Swedish-looking, the Russian-looking. Everything!

The level of testosterone and freedom of the character to explore what is comfortable for them during their vacation make this a masterpiece. Maybe you should do this with your male friends (homo and/or hetero) when you go for holidays.

But this is a story of two characters.

One flaw – there should have been at least one scene with Ger and Fer doing some Taekwondo to really justify the title.

Why watch this film? Perhaps these visuals will help to answer the question!
