Far too slow, says nothing resolves nothing .By a customer , 09 Nov 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]This was not a good film on many levels. Before going into them, I would like to say that
The main actor Mark Cirillo tried his best with a really weak storyline and very poor direction.
The film, though gay themed, is entitled the Seminarian Why ? apart from a few brief chats with his tutor on his theocratic Dissertation , the issues of which never get explained or resolved, this film could have been set in any university or college in the world, the Seminary is a useless ploy, and It is not until quite a way through the film that you realise this character is living between a Seminary and his mothers home. This has to do with the fact that the budget was so low that it is quite obvious that the same sets are being re-used without much detail being changed. This gives the effect that you dont really know where you are and is quite disconcerting. The film does address issues of love and betrayal in the gay world, but takes an excruciatingly long time in doing so. Far too slow, says nothing resolves nothing .

Boy the main actor has a huge....By a customer , 19 Jul 2013A truly atrocious banal film. Like many many gay films, it cannot differentiate from being a 'mainstream' film and porn. The main actor (almost performer) provides us with a full frontal including his genitals in the first few seconds of the film. Yawn! The director, realising the film is utter rubbish encourages the protagonist into a totally pointless scene where the main character walks into a scene semi erect. (Hi mom!) Double yawn. Objectification is no substitute for talent. If that notion has inspired you to watch it then you're very sad. The point of informing you of yet another example of double standard in the 'film' industry is that EVEN with this, it is still utter pants. It reinforces negative stereo types that many of us gay men are totally fed up of being associated with. I guess I should have really feigned excitement, giggled in a girly way while clapping my hands in front of my chest vigourously and exclaiming 'F**k Yeah'! Then I could create a false memory of films of yesteryear, to justify it, where women had to flash their gash every two minutes but thats a lie! But I don't have a false memory, unfortunately, having watched paint dry, I would choose that any day over this appaling abortion.
Don't worry, there is life after watching this!By a customer , 05 Jun 2013I found this poor on all levels. What was it trying to say? All I could see was that heterosexual relationships work whereas gay relationships do not! Perhaps it was a stab at railroading and same sex marriage legislation? I could not recommend this to anyone.
The dullest film EVER madeBy MartyP (7 reviews) from UK , 08 Mar 2013Dull... Dull.. Slow... Slow... STOP.. DON'T RENT IT Wanted to give NIL point, but it won't let me! I lost the will to live, tried it on 2x speed, but it was still slow and dull.
I nearly cried..... From boredomBy Marty2000 (1 review) , 12 Jan 2013I have never seen a film go on for so long without anything actually happening- nothing is resolved and there is no discernible storyline
Slow and boringBy xxamukxx (21 reviews) from Greenhithe , 31 Dec 2012I agree with the other reviews for this title. It looked promising. But it was too slow, poor acting and just a let down in the end. Need I say more
