TV-14 | 48min | Drama | 29 September 2012 (Netherlands)
“Boy” tells the story of an invisible member of our society, an undocumented Filipino cleaner. He has no name. Moving continuously from one location to the other, he is living between being seen and being invisible, between his life with his boyfriend, an erotic dancer, and his role as financial provider of his family back home. All this changes when his boyfriend auditions for a dance company and one of his employers commits suicide. A charming photographer shows interest in him. He wants him as a model for a photo series.
Boy will not be for everyone. There simply is not enough going on for that. But anyone who can look beyond a story will discover a fascinating style exercise by director Tami Ravid. Hopefully she can use her talent for a full-fledged feature film. And if there is an interesting story at the base, it can produce a very strong film.
