ABOUT THE MOVIE – Postcards from London
https://rozefilmdagen.nl/programma/22/postcards-from-london

Engeland 2018, 88 min, Steve McLean
English, no subtitles

Set in a neon-lit idealized version of Soho, this movie takes us far away from reality and into a journey into both high-brow and rowdy gay culture. Harris Dickinson stars as a pretty boy who becomes adept in bedazzling his customers with cultural knowledge as well as companionship. Witty, outrageous, highly stylized and a must-see.

De ware verleiding is de schoonheid van kunst voor deze elegante gigolo’s. Sexy, campy en hoogst vermakelijk.

De naïeve Jim wil weg uit het ouderlijk huis, en vertrekt naar Londen, maar is al snel platzak. Dan wordt hij onder de hoede genomen door de Raconteurs, een wel heel bijzondere groep escort-jongens. Zij specialiseren zich niet zozeer op fysieke betaalde liefde, als wel in een goed gesprek op hoog niveau over kunst en cultuur.

Dit gegeven wordt uitgebeeld in een fantastische, surrealistische stijl waarin we van Caravaggio via Francis Bacon naar Lucien Freud gaan, met meer dan de nodige hints naar Querelle en andere edel-kitsch. Met opkomende ster Harris Dickinson is dit een lust voor het oog, waarbij ook humor en warmte niet vergeten wordt.

ABOUT THE ROZEFILMDAGEN
https://rozefilmdagen.nl/english

THE 22nd AMSTERDAM LGBTQ FILM FESTIVAL

Roze Filmdagen (meaning ‘Pink Film Days’) is the largest film festival for LGBTQ films in the Netherlands.

The wide and varied selection of films includes romantic comedies, provoking documentaries and everything in between. The variety in films reflects the diversity of the community. Besides several focus programmes we proudly showcase numerous short films that are (just like our feature and documentary films) sparkling, provocative, urgent, and engaging.

Join our cinematic cultural community experience that goes on for eleven days and meet and mingle with filmmakers and visitors who celebrate all aspects of sexual diversity.

But above all enjoy one of the 138 films we selected for you and hopefully you’ll be coming back for more.

Virtually all screenings are in English, or have English subtitles. There are a few exceptions but the listings in the mostly bilingual printed program, or on our website, will inform you about this.

Enjoy the festival!

Looking forward to seeing you,
Timothy
