Cappuccino (BOF7)

Drama | 16mins | French/Swiss (Eng Subs) | 2010

 

 

“Jérémie is a shy teenager who keeps a heavy secret: his homosexuality. While trying to find his way between hunky classmate Damien and protective mother Gina, Jérémie’s life is about to change.”

 


Written & Directed by: Tamer Ruggli
Starring: Benjamin Décosterd, Anton Ciurlia & Manuela Biedermann


 

Cappuccino may on the surface be about a shy teen coming to terms with his sexuality, having his first sexual experience and coming out, but there are glimpses of so much more towards the end; the effect this has on his mother. Yes, it’s sweet watching Jérémie crush on a classmate and it’s sad that the straight guy turns out to be a d*ck, but the most moving scene goes to the mother stripping herself back; that’s the real change, therein lies the heart of the story.
