What happens when you find yourself watching an ostensibly 'gay movie' in which only one gay character appears, and in a secondary role?"


The Girl on the Bridge (1999)

This is a playful film that does not ask the viewer for sustained reflection, but rather, to take delight in the images on the screen. Hey, I've always been a sucker for those Robert Doisneau pictures.
