… in 10 words:
Simon’s adventure in a gay sauna is insightful and interesting.
… in 100 words:
Yes… it opens with a shower scene; full frontal nudity! Sweat however takes a sharp turn and focuses on Simon. When juxtaposed with Tim whilst in the changing room, we get a clear and insightful look at who they both are without any exposition or dialogue; it’s great! As it moves forward we see Simon interacting with others and its here where we learn more about him but also get an insight into saunas and the dark side of life. Though the music is at times cheesy, Sweat resonates with that part of everyone which just wants to be desired.
