    In Kid Meets Child, Harry-- an Englishman on a short solo break to Berlin-- satisfies Johannes, a Berlin local, as well as following a round of hook-up sex, the pair kill the 15 hours before Harry's trip residence by wandering around the German capital talking about life, love as well as what it implies to be gay in the contemporary world.

    Boy Meets Kid contains really little story but this lack of a fleshed-out narrative arc does not interfere with what is essentially a 75 minute conversation concerning the gay problem as well as whether today's anything goes, liberal societal norms make us any happier: Harry has never made love with any person greater than when and also broach such post-coital embarassment that he often feels that \"I want to cut my prick off\" while Johannes, that is determined for a loving partnership just like his parents', is not completely happy remaining in an open partnership, something that is plainly his partner's suggestion rather than his own.

    In one short but telling scene we witness a hint of bigotry when Johannes can rarely think that Harry, that is black, is a doctor. The question is exposed: possibly Johannes' surprise is not because Harry is black yet merely because one could not expect a physician to be cruising the city on the mission for connect, yet the viewer is left with the awkward feeling that there is a hidden presumption that a young black guy is much more most likely to be in a routine profession rather than be an experienced medical professional.

    Both leads-- Matthew J Morrison as Harry and Alexis Koutsoulis as Johannes-- reach grasps with the movie's naturalistic, docudrama style, with aplomb, their on-the-moneyperformances highlighted by the hand-held camera made use of in almost every scene. Actually, the design is so conversational and naturalistic that I have no concept how much, if any type of, of the discussion was improvised.

    Boy Fulfills Boy asks some interesting inquiries, not the very least whether sexual freedom brings about real contentment, however it does not attempt to address them. Rather, the characters' introspection makes us question our very own life options and, in so doing, supplies a well-crafted, provocative piece which is well worth a watch.
