Twitter Capsule: Opaque, third-rate Keep the Lights On, as sweet Turkish guy strives to "save" bratty dopehead. Grim stabs at allegory.

VOR:   Granted, some resonances are culturally specific. Even so, the prototype of a festival film that bulks up the LGBT programming but slips from memory within three days.
