Abstinence and indulgence, Christianity and Paganism: the oppositions stand in tension here. The heat of the Sardinian desert is powerfully captured on film with both cast and crew put through their paces, sweating it out Herzog-style. And Brian Eno’s distinctly moving score beautifully complements the directors’ superb framing, pacing and stunning slow-motion photography. The result is a glorious hymn to the living, breathing, very real, male body, and a bold, personal reclamation of gay history.
