I admit it I just wanted to make Dee look by adapting his subject line.
Well, my Jelle ist Jelle Florizoone who stars in Bavo Defurne’s new movie “Noordzee Texas” a coming of age movie about a teen boy who falls in love with the boy next door. You may think “Oh, there is 20 movies like that one already” but it’s not. It’s actually one of the loveliest gay love stories that I have ever seen on film and I have to admit that I was quite close to reach for the tissues at the two or three most touching scenes.
Also, since it it set in the 70s, the film provided some nostalgic moments for me and there’s some lovely Noordzee scenery too.
Both main actors Jelle Florizoone and Marthias Vergels do a great job IMO.
The movie has already been mentioned in gay blog world and I’m so happy that it is out on DVD from Belgium or the Netherlands.
The DVD comes with Dutch audio only (French subs on/off)
For those interested here’s the official trailer
I would think this one is going to be released in other countries as well.
