청각장애인 민수의 첫사랑 그리고 목욕탕에서 만난 아저씨와의 첫경험, 민수의 성장영화. (2011년 제12회 서울LGBT필름페스티벌)
★★★★★★★★★ Stars

Even though this movie is extremely short, I have to admit I felt so many emotions mostly ranging from: I feel like I'm impending someone's personal life and should stop watching - to feeling super happy for the character - to being so mad I could fist fight a 8ft man. 
If there was something I could say about this movie was that it was real. It was raw. It was truth. No matter the year, era, generation.... Somewhere someone is going through this and it's fucked up and sad. 

 I loved (if even for a moment) that happiness he had and newfound strength to stand up to his brother...
 I actually would love to see this movie get turned into a full length/show..... preferably with a happy ending that he deserves.... even if life isn't all rainbows and happiness, I wish he could have that. 

Literally though, I want to give this movie 10 stars. But I'm still upset it ended so quickly. Lol I really wanted this to be longer. Plus my emotions are still all over the place. 

Now excuse me while I go cry.
