Each day after work, Carlos, a language school teacher, frequents the heady surroundings of his local cruising ground. One evening he encounters a teenage boy from his class named Toni, and the two engage in a brief sexual tryst. As the relationship between teacher and student begins to develop, some dark truths emerge about the young man and his mysterious group of friends. Much like Alain GuiraudiesStranger by the Lake, Maral Fores' follow-up to his acclaimed debutAnimals(BFI Flare 2013) continues to explore the perils of illicit sexual encounters, but with an edge of youthful impudence. Characterised by meticulous long shots, Fores' disturbing mystery has a languid visual approach often at odds with the thrills on screen, which are guaranteed to shock and excite in equal measure.
