Jeste li se kada upoznavali sa nekim preko interneta? Chat, razmjena slika, malo priče, telefon pa suočenje sa sagovornikom! I na kraju ili razočarenje ili oduševljenje, ponekad ravnodušnost, a vrlo često se sve završi seksom , bar na jednu noć!
Kada sam prvi put “otkrio” chat bio sam oduševljan. Jao koliko ljudi na njemu, mora da tu ima nešto i za mene, a uz sve to bilo mi je jako zabavno.
Vremenom mi je taj textualni chat postao dosadan i isprazan pa sam se preorijentisao na video chat, na kojem nema mnogo naših ljudi. Kada nema šanse da naletim na nekog kretena onda se sve pretvori u zabavu i relaksaciju! A to je ono što očekujem od chata!
A iskustva sa upoznavanjem likova sa chatova i date sajtova kao šro je romeo i slični su raznolika! Često mi se prevrtao želudac sjedeći u društvu likova koji nisu ni izbliza onakvi kako sam ih zamišljao!

Ponekad to bude obična seksualna avantura, a u dva navrata se sve pretvorilo u pravu emocionalnu buru!
A da sve može da se pretvori u noćnu moru pokazuje i ovaj kratki film koji govori baš o tome!

Solace

Some of the best gay shorts can at times catch you unaware, having far more going on than what may at first appear, as this emotional work is indicative of.

It tells the story of Hugo, a young man on the look out for love on a hot L.A. night. Surfing the online chatrooms, he is soon to hook-up with Brett; an older gay man living in Beverly Hills. Arriving at his luxurious pad, Hugo is greeted with a bowl of speciality ice cream, given the viewer minutes earlier witnessed Brett ominously mixing ice cream with an assortment of pills. Knowing that something just isn’t right, we watch as the two men take to the outdoor hot tub and a dip in which Hugo is set to get more than he bargained for. Or is he?

Well-executed throughout and backed by a small but fine cast, this thoughtful piece is in effect a cautionary tale on the perils of online dating, thanks to a telling script from director Michaline Babich and producer Richard Courtney, who here doubles as Mr Beverly Hills. Yet is it the eye-candy turn from Joey Tuccio as Hugo that draws your attention, perfectly capturing the emotions of a young man who finally thought he had found the one, only to not fully understand the true nature of the situation involved. For like any good tale with a twist, it only reveals itself in the closing reel.

I’ll say no more, other than comment on the title, listed at times as King of Swords so as to avoid confusion with a series of other works bearing the Solace name, although as to where King of Swords fits in … well answers on a postcard here, delightful as it is.
