It's All So Quiet
aka Boven is het stil
First screened in October 2013
Director: Nanouk Leopold. Cast: Jeroen Willems, Henri Garcin, Martijn Lakemeier, Wim Opbrouck, Lies Visschedijk. Screenplay: Nanouk Leopold (based on the novel by Gerbrand Bakker).

Twitter Capsule: Capably shot, fundamentally affecting portrait of middle-aged gay farmer and aging dad feels a bit too familiar.

VOR:   Gay stories this taciturn and introspective are a rare breed, as are lucid views of caretaking for aging parents. Still, appeal is fairly niche and style unadventurous.
