/Canadian film, BEYOND THE WALLS, specifics are everything, for these pave the way to our understanding and our finally being able to accept and even appre-ciate our two protatgonists: Ilir (played by Guillaume Gouix), an Albanian imigrant to France, and Paulo (Matila Malliarakis), a younger fellow involved currently with a woman but clearly more attracted to guys. How these two meet and mate provides the first perhaps third of the movie, and it seems very real, as much for the behavioral red flags that shoot up in our minds, as for the warmth and physical attraction between the men.
David Salles (above, right), this fellow completes an unusual triangle in a most satisfying way.
