Very thought-provoking. I highly recommend this film for anyone who is interested in character studies and watching people evolve into who they are going to become.

Please don't compare this to Brokeback. They take place at very different times in history for gay men. Both well-done and moving films.

Wonderful and somewhat poignant coming of age story. Well-acted, tho I just didn't feel the chemistry between the two men.

The two men weren't brought up to reveal their emotions too openly so I think the reticence was appropriate. I never heard the word "love" mentioned once. The closest approach was when John found Gheorghiu at the truck farm and he did explicitly say he needed to be with Gheorghiu.

Wow, what an amazing movie. I wish I had the words to describe the specific melancholy yet heartfelt warmth this movie gives. Very glad I decided to watch it.

This is one of the best movies I've seen in years. I suppose comparisons to Brokeback Mountain are inevitable, but I think this movie is much better made.

The storytelling is highly visual, multilayered, and perfectly timed. The characters all affect each other in interesting ways, ...Read more

I agree completely with every word. Brokeback Mountain should have been this movie.

The short story BBM SHOULD have been this film, God's Own Country. BBM as a movie was ruined, I think, by having way too much kow-towing to straight sensibilities.

I'm excited to see what Francis Lee does next. I think this is his first feature, and he's already outdone Ang Lee.

A wonderful love story that is acted so well that you feel like the actors are really in love with each other. Raw emotions and intimate moments paired with long camera shots that doesn't rush the audience, but rather gives you a chance to sit with the deep feelings playing out in front of ...Read more
