‘London Spy’ je britanska špijunska dramska serija čiju premijeru su gledaoci  BBC TWO televizije imali priliku da pogledaju 9.Nov.2015. god
Serija ima 5 epizoda i emituju se ponedeljkom.
Danny je momak od dvadesetak godina, zaposlen u magacinu za transport paketa, sklon pijankama i društvu lakom na drogu, ali za sebe će uvijek reći I’m fine ili prevedeno na našem romeovski riječnik OK momak, ma šta to značilo za brojne korisnike gayromea sa ovih naših balkanskih prostora.
Sticajem okolnosti upoznaje Aleksa, otmenog engl. gospodina koji mu za sebe kaže da radi u nekoj od investicionoj banci za bogate kijente.
Alex živi urednim društveno prihvatljivim načinom života, pažljibvo bira skupocjenu garderobu, posjećuje mjesta rezervisana za višu klasu, redovno se bavi sportom i svojim stilom i načinom života ničim ne odaje da bi mogao da ima bilo kakav odnos sa nekim likom kao što je Danny.

Sex between Danny and Alex
Prva epizoda ove serije nam prikazuje kako nastaje njihovo prijateljstvo, otkrivanje emocija, seks i sve elemente jedne lijepe romanse.
Već nakon prve epizode u medijima se razbuktala priča kako je  BBC sebi dopustio nedopustivo. U ranim večernjim satima emitovao je strastven seks dva muškarca i prikazao nešto što nikada nebi uzrujalo većinu ljudi da se radilo o muško-ženskom paru.
Ipak britanski cenzori još nisu odlučili da li će ispitati okolnosti ovog slučaja i pored jedne žalbe koju su zaprimili i objavili da ni u kojem slučaju neće praviti diskriminaciju između heteroseksualnog i homoseksualnog seksa.
U svakom slučaju svim čitaocima ovog sajta preporučujem da pogledaju ovu izvrsno režiranu TV seriju koja nam već u prvoj epizodi otkriva da se radi o zapletu u kojem sasvim sigurno britanska obavještajna služba ima jednu od glavnih uloga.
O čemu se radi saznaćemo u narednim epizodama.

New original co-production, London Spy, is a five-part miniseries created by acclaimed best-selling author Tom Rob Smith (Child 44), co-produced with BBC Two and produced by Working Title Television. It will air on BBC America in 2015.
The gripping, contemporary, emotional thriller stars Ben Whishaw (The Hour, Skyfall, Bright Star) as Danny, an innocent, young romantic drawn into a dangerous world of espionage. He is joined by Academy Award-winning Jim Broadbent (Moulin Rouge!, Bridget Jones’ Diary, Harry Potter), British actress Charlotte Rampling OBE, whose recent role in Restless in 2012 saw her receive an Emmy Award nomination, and newcomer Edward Holcroft (Wolf Hall).
London Spy is directed by Jakob Verbruggen, whose credits include The Fall and the US version of The Bridge.
On his first television drama, creator and writer Tom Rob Smith says: “London Spy has gathered an exceptional cast and a visionary director. I couldn’t be more excited, or proud.”
Juliette Howell, Head of Television at Working Title Television, says: “Working Title couldn’t be more proud to be producing this captivating drama. Incredible scripts, a hugely gifted director and a world-class cast; London Spy exudes quality through and through.”
London Spy is the story of a chance romance between two people from very different worlds, one from the headquarters of the Secret Intelligence Service, the other from a world of clubbing and youthful excess. Danny (Whishaw) – gregarious, hedonistic, romantic and adrift, falls for the anti-social enigmatic and brilliant Alex (Holcroft). Just as the two of them realize that they’re perfect for each other, Alex disappears. Danny, utterly ill-equipped to take on the complex and codified world of British espionage, must decide whether he’s prepared to fight for the truth.
Tom Rob Smith’s award-winning Child 44 trilogy was an international publishing sensation and has been turned into a movie with Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Noomi Rapace, produced by Ridley Scott, scheduled for release in April 2015.

London Spy is produced by Guy Heeley, and executive producers are Tom Rob Smith, Juliette Howell, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner for Working Title Television, and Head of Independent Drama Commissioning, Polly Hill, for BBC Two. The miniseries will be distributed by NBC Universal and BBC Worldwide.

Powerful and psychedelic. Abrase is the transparent picture of the fading love of two men, remembered. Prepare yourself to be deeply lost in an ephemeral tale and efflorescent images. Sadly, this title does not have an official Internet address. All we know is that Abrase was directed by Toshadeva Palani, and starring Christian Adams and Michael Bordenave.

The fading love of two men, remembered. A relationship once vivid, now dissipating into a fog of partial remembrance; the memories of heartbreak and loss that bend and change as the years go by.

Wasp (2015)

Wasp (2015)

Director: Philippe Audi-Dor
Writers: Philippe Audi-Dor
Genre: Drama
Country:  France, Lebanon, Switzerland, UK
Language: English
Duration: 72 min
Year: 2015

Stars: Hugo Bolton, Elly Condron, Simon Haycock

Olivier (Simon Haycock) takes his boyfriend James (Hugo Bolton) on a romantic break to his house in the South of France. Whilst is France they bump into Caroline (Elly Condron), an old friend of James’ who has been dumped by her boyfriend. The couple agree to let Caroline join them for their vacation but Olivier is less than happy at having a third person around for the duration. As the days go by Olivier and Caroline clash but soon they realise their dislike of each other may actually be covering up something more surprising.
Wasp is the feature-length debut of Swiss writer/director Philippe Audi-Dor. The film features only three actors and takes place in and around a beautiful house in Gordes, Provence. One of the first things you notice is that Wasp is incredibly understated and that’s definitely one of its strengths. Audi-Dor doesn’t feel the need to make his characters veer off onto monologues to move the plot along and often the silences in the film speak volumes about the characters.
The central plot focuses on the arrival of Caroline into the midst of Olivier and James’ romantic break. Early on in the movie Caroline questions whether either men have been with a woman before and Olivier confesses he has but not since he came out. It’s established early on that the strong-willed Caroline is happy to push whatever buttons she needs to in order to get a reaction and despite an initial dislike between her and Olivier, the two characters start to be drawn to one another.
It’s at this point that the film gets really interesting. We’ve seen countless films exploring closeted characters that are attracted to the same sex but we’ve never seen a film before where a man who identifies as gay begins to question if he is indeed gay or possibly bisexual. The way the story unfolds is really intriguing and we commend Audi-Dor for doing something different and unexpected. The tension that builds between Olivier and Caroline does so expertly and at a believable pace.
We really don’t want to give too much else away about the plot but all we’ll say is that there are plenty of surprising twists and turns as you head to Wasp’s climax. Audi-Dor has assembled a stellar cast for the movie with all of the leads equal to one another in terms of their performance. Simon Haycock does a great job of conveying Olivier’s conflict through his emotive performance and he has superb chemistry with both Hugo Bolton and Elly Condron. Bolton makes what could have been a fairly flighty role rather meaty and Condron has great fun playing the devilishly manipulative Caroline. The trio works really well together and they really excel in the scenes where the tension threatens to boil over.
Audi-Dor, who wrote the movie and directed it, also deserves special comment for what he’s achieved. The film doesn’t feel low budget and the cinematography captures the stunning location really well. It’s not easy to make a film with only three actors compelling and whilst this could work well as a play, Audi-Dor’s direction makes it an intriguing character study and he gets superb performances from his actors.
Wasp isn’t due to be released until Spring 2015 and we think you should be making a note in your diary to see it now. With strong central performances, an interesting and original premise, and stunning direction it’s a film that took us by complete surprise. We’ll be keeping an eye on Audi-Dor to see what he does next and we’ll also be closely watching the careers of Simon Haycock, Hugo Bolton and Elly Condron.
