A movie based solely on following two people about and listening to their
conversation shouldn’t really work but it’s to director Daniel Sanchez
Lopez’s credit that Boy Meets Boy is more interesting than it has any right
After meeting the previous evening in a gay club and just before Harry
returns to the UK later that day, Johannes (Alexandros Koutsoulis) and
Harry (Matthew James Morrison) wander about Berlin talking about things
that people talk about, love, family, jobs etc.
Feeling at times if it’s unscripted and with some of the conversation
between the pair being less than scintillating the story does tend to drag
for long periods. However thanks to wonderful performances from both the
central characters, Mathew James Morrison is particularly good as Harry the
disillusioned junior doctor, Boy Meets Boy is never anything but watchable.
With its limited and at times meandering story Boy meets Boy is a movie
that won’t be for everyone. For myself I just about found enough in this
simple modern love story to keep me entertained.
