Set in Buenos Aires, Argentina, with two sexy young leads, this is a charming film about how love can creep up on you, even when you have completely different plans! When his girlfriend dumps him, (but still continues to sleep with him), determined Bruno will do anything to get her back, even attempt to steal away her new, reportedly bisexual, boyfriend Pablo. But when Bruno meets Pablo, there's more than just feigned affections between them, as they find that they genuinely have a chemistry which threatens to tip their friendship into something more. As their bond grows, so does their emotional and sexual questioning, facilitated by lots of getting drunk together, watching football and crashing over at each other's places (cue sleeping on the same bed clad only in their undies).
Filming in a laid-back and realistic style, the director allows us to see the little conversations and interactions that seem inconsequential, but build up to the undeniable (though they may try for a while) realisation that they actually have feelings for each other. Moving, sexy and smart, Plan B is a feel-good film which tackles the blurry borders between male sexuality and friendship, building up the tension and rewarding the viewers patience with understated and subtle acting and a great denoument.
