Every now and then it’s important to view a film in advance when you’re in the right mood for it. Much like listening to music, films can be skewed if the viewer is in the mood for a drama for instance but has a comedy to review. I do my best to be mindful of these typical traits we all share before viewing any film up for review.


I was ready to view “The Strong Ones” as I was looking forward to the premise.

A man Lucas goes to visit his sister in Chile where he strikes up an intense relationship with Antonio, all while dealing with opposing viewpoints and a society that isn’t welcoming.


The film was engaging but only to a certain point. The narrative tended to get muddled as the story progressed but the actors did their best to clear it up.

There were themes that could be translated to any country anywhere in the world. Acceptance. Disregard. Classism. Homophobia.


Overall, I liked “The Strong Ones” but I really wanted to like it more.


Best,
