Sex & Beethoven - The Reunion

(35 mm, 16 min, color, 1997)
(1.33, Mono Optical Sound)

Two heterosexual (but not much) boys invite two naive (but not much) prostitutes for a night of sex. In the preliminary conversations, a little poetry, a bit of philosophy and giant doses of cavalry of sexuality, everything with Beethoven in the background. But when it comes the time to have sex, the truth appears.

Reviews
Sex & Beethoven – The Reunion, directed by Carlos Gerbase, is an erotic-intellectual spree between two friends and two prostitutes invited to a party. Anarchic, libertarian, well in the style of Gerbase, one of the talents of the South.”
(Luiz Zanin Oricchio, O ESTADO DE SÃO PAULO, 07/23/97)

“Who thinks that the Brazilian cinema is very prudish lately should look for Sex & Beethoven – The Reunion. At the Film Festival of Gramado, the film left a lot of people perplexed by its obscenity, announced from the first dialogue, to the point that few realize that it’s a comedy of customs absolutely in tune with the urban culture of our time.”
(José Geraldo Couto, FOLHA DE SÃO PAULO, 08/25/97)
