Descripción del producto
Türkisfarbenes Meer, weiße Wellen, tiefblauer Himmel, sonnengebräunte Haut, trainierte Sixpacks, coole Sprüche und eine atemberaubende Kamera zieht dich förmlich in die Wogen hinein.
Jesse und Fergus sind Zwillinge, beide 17, und leben in Newcastle, dem Kohlenpott Australiens. Jesse surft um die Junior Pro Surf Championship, um nicht zu enden wie sein älterer Bruder Victor, der trotz einer vielversprechenden Surferkarriere mit seinem Vater in den Docks arbeitet. Sein Bruder Fergus mag Musik, Kunst und am liebsten andere Jungs.
Zu einem heimlichen Wochenend-Campingtrip an einem abgelegenen Strand mit seinen Buddies nimmt Jesse den Bruder als Alibi mit. Doch ausgerechnet Surf-Wunderkind Andy nimmt Fergus unter seine Fittiche und führt ihn nicht nur ins Wellenreiten ein. Als plötzlich Victor mit seinen Kumpels auftaucht, eskalieren die Konflikte zwischen den drei Brüdern und lässt sie erkennen, was wirklich im Leben zählt.
Die Bilder, die Kameramann Richard Michalak da eingefangen hat, sind nur als eindrücklich und atemberaubend zu bezeichnen. Die Surfszenen sind glasklar und schlichtweg packend und spannend gefilmt. Auch vor den Schauspielern muss man sich verneigen. Hut ab. (moviesection.de)
Die kunstvollen Bilder der Surfer, wie sie mit fast mythischer Anmut nackt unter Wasser schwimmen, die Nahaufnahmen ihrer goldschattierten Haut und ozeanblauen Augen, machen ehrfürchtig vor der Vergänglichkeit der Schönheit. (cinemaretro.com)
Leckere Aussies, braungebrannt, knackige Hintern in Surfshorts. Der Film ist übrigens super! (Schwulissimo)

The surfing shots are great and it was interesting to see the shots of Newcastle Australia. Australia is ofen only shown in it's best light, but the shots of the town showed it as a somewhat depressed run down factory town. The film did not have much depth, and again, if you are buying it because you think it has any gay storyline, then don't, but if you like surf movies then this is not a bad film.
However, why this film is touted / marketed as an LGBT friendly picture is beyond me. Jesse's brother Fergus (referred to by Jesse's friends as "Fagus") is an allegedly gay character, but beyond a little almost-snuggle with Andy and some innocent banter about them both liking stars and astronomy, you'll never know for sure. The "gay" subplot in this film is beyond vapor thin and Fergus is stereotypically played as a shy, embarrassed goth-ish kid with black fingernails and constantly living in the shadow of his two very straight brothers. The main themes and scenes in the story are all about the straight boys and girls and, of course, the surfing.
The movie's not all that bad. It's reasonably well written and fairly well acted. The cinematography is terrific - particularly the water and surf footage. All in all, it's a well crafted piece of cinema, but everyone's got to STOP referring to this thing as an LGBT movie just because it's released by Wolf.
Buy it as an entertaining surf movie. Don't buy it as an LGBT movie.
In the U.S. and the U.K. Newcastle is marketed as a gay film. It is and it isn't. The teen surfer boys spend a lot of time in board shorts or less and make nice, blue-eyed, eye candy. The opening shot of Jesse, on a top bunk, opening his blue eyes to look out at the surf, is captivating. Then there is his darker fraternal twin. Fergus (Xavier Samuels), who is a goth, gay kid with a streak of color in his hair. The cover of the U.K. release has Fergus/Xavier front and center, with a note that he is to appear in Twilight: Eclipse. In truth, Xavier as vampire Riley in Eclipse is very different from Xavier the gay, meek Fergus of Newcastle.
There is a lot of surf in the film, a lot of dysfunctional family dynamics involving Jesse's older brother who was a better surfer but did not handle the transition to adulthood well, and a lot of teen angst. When the boys and a couple of girls take off for a weekend in the dunes we see some naked boy butts and watch Jesse lose his virginity up close. It is clear that Fergus has a crush on Jesse's friend Andy. When, as odd men out, they pair up that evening, Fergus and Andy progress from stargazing to views on homosexuality to talk of masturbation. Eventually the older brother shows up with friends and ruins the beach party. (And the water changes in color from turquoise to steely blue - on purpose as we learn in the extras.)
A lot has been made of the Fergus-Andy "gay" relationship. The gay director, Dan Castle, reportedly did not specifically see them as a gay couple, but had the two guys room together to bond, and told "Andy" to take the gay notion as far as he was comfortable. Australian men are not as chronically homophobic as are U.S. men, hence Puppetry of the Penis: The Ancient Art of Genital Origami. Level-headed Andy is one of the few who do not make jokes ("Fagus') about Fergus. True, after the accepting Andy gives Fergus permission to "look" the two become close. And, since both are shown buckling up as if they had been up to something, perhaps VERY close. But why not, since Fergus has no other friends and Andy is accepting of Fergus. At one point towards the end of the film Andy is referred to as Fergus's "boyfriend," but it is clear that this is said in a friendly, loving way among friends. So I guess if you must consider Fergus and Andy to be a couple, by all means do. I doubt director Castle, will argue with you, since there is a market for fresh gay films.
The film ends with the two brothers, Jesse and Fergus, swimming naked together at a beach that is not clothing optional. It is clear that they are completely comfortable with each other's nudity as they swim like dolphins around an underwater camera in sun-dappled water, and as they run naked through the neighborhood back to their granddad's place. (A deft hand on the controls show they really are running naked if that is your thing.) Of course Xavier Samuels is not gay. Fergus is.
The Extras are worthwhile since they discuss the filming and the music. (One actor proved to be a talented musician as well.) The film is not perfect, but accomplishes what it set out to do: Sun, Surf, Skin.
Important to me, I got to see Newcastle for the first time at a private screening at the Raleigh Studios in Hollywood where members of the cast and crew were present. In addition to liking the movie, it was exciting to watch their reactions to being on screen at a studio theater in Hollywood. A mostly new to the business cast doing well on their first outing.
