I was a bit suspicious too about what they call a "gay-western"...I think this term causes some misunderstanding. It's not because you put people wearing cowboy clothes on screen that it makes a western out of it
Because I was writing myself a story happening in the '60s, I read the book and saw the film.
It's definitely NOT a western, it's a pure and uncommon love story film.
Love stories aren't usually my cup of tea, but I really loved this one because the actors were sincere and real, the story simple and amazing, landscapes beautiful,...
For me, it is really worthing to see it. Just to judge by yourself.
I understand some people disliked it (mosta people I know did) but go and have a look by yourself and then let us know what you think of it
