Bent (1997)

So many films have been made about the Holocaust, but the subjects have typically been Jews. This film focuses on the persecution of homosexuals in Germany prior to and then during the war.

It is based on a play, so the film is beautifully composed and the dialogue is rich. Clive Owen and Canadian actor Lothaire Bluteau provide powerful bodies and characters to bring the story to life.

It is a desperately sad story, nearly devoid of hope.
