With comparisons to modern queer masterpieces Weekend and Call Me By Your Name, End of the Century poignantly captures the simultaneously fleeting and enduring nature of intimate connections. The evocative romance delicately depicts the casual and steamy sexual encounter between a tourist and local in Barcelona. The men soon realise, however, that they have met before – 20 years earlier, when they were in the closet and too afraid to pursue a relationship. Soulful and remarkable, this is a confident and unmissable debut feature.
