Check out what's streaming this month. See the full list. Title: Don't Tell Anyone Four angry cadets have formed an inner circle in an attempt to beat the system and ward off the boredom and stifling confinement of the military academy, set off a chain of events that Alfonso wants to be a writer, but he decides to practice as a journalist.
When he is assigned to the crime section of a newspaper, he will witness the dirty world of Peruvian tabloids. The Peruvian anti-terrorist army takes control of a far away and unknown small village isolated in the Andes by the terrorist militia "Sendero Luminoso" Shining Path , during the dirty war in Peru at 80's decade.
Santiago, a retired soldier who fought for his country, Peru, find it hard to adjust back to society while dealing with PTSD and family problems. The Peruvian army captain Pantaleon Pantoja, a very serious and efficient officer, is chosen to set up a special service of 'visitors' to satisfy the sexual needs of the soldiers posted on remote jungle outposts.
An unusual ghost story set on the Peruvian seaside; a married fisherman struggles to reconcile his devotion to his male lover within his town's rigid traditions. Magallanes, a former army soldier Damian Alcazar drives a taxi and eventually a driver of a retired colonel Federico Luppi , who was in command of his troops in times of struggle against Juan, a young man convicted of terrorism, is given amnesty from a Lima prison; he boards a bus to return home and, in his mind's eye, recalls events in his village near Huaraz when he was Fausta is suffering from a rare disease called the Milk of Sorrow, which is transmitted through the breast milk of pregnant women who were abused or raped during or soon after pregnancy.
Based on the alleged autobiography of gay peruvian talk show host Jaime Bailey. Joaquin, a young man from the high class of Lima, deals with problems concerning his sexual identity as a child, then as a teenager pressured by his macho snobbish father, then as an independent lazy pot-smoking college student, and later as a cocaine addict in Lima and Miami. The film has been shown in some festivals, but we don't think it had a commercial run in this country.
We caught with it recently on DVD format. The movie, directed by Francisco Lombardi, is based on the novel by television personality and writer, Jaime Bayly, with an adaptation by Giovanna Pollarolo. The film is a frank account on the Peruvian society. It's clear from the start that Joaquin is gay. He has been sheltered by his mother, against his father's wishes. As a way to initiate the young boy in a the typical Peruvian man's world, Luis Felipe, the father, decides to take him hunting, with no good results.
Then, the father takes the young man to one of Lima's best house of ill repute, an experience that ends badly. Joaquin likes Alejandra, the young college student. She feels the attraction as well, but Joaquin has an eye for attractive guys. When Gonzalo and Rocio appear at a disco, Joaquin feels attracted to the hunky young man.
It's clear Gonzalo is also interested in Joaquin and thus begins their sexual involvement that will not produce the results either one expected.
The movie is a complex character study about the duality most of these rich young men of the upper crust of the Peruvian society and how they feel about casual gay sex. In a society dominated by the machismo, they must hide away in a married life that is a cover up for the way homosexuality is concealed. The film is honest in the way it deals with this subject.
Santiago Magill makes Joaquin credible in his appealing performance. Lucia Jimenez is also good as Alejandra, the girl that loved him. Christian Meier plays the closeted Gonzalo. Giovanni Ciccia's take on the troubled rich boy Alfonso is right. The rest of the cast does an excellent job in portraying all the upper class people in the movie.
