Top 5 movies about same-sex love between men
Love is different: mutual, unrequited, forbidden.... The latter category includes such a manifestation of feelings as homosexuality. Same-sex love has been and continues to be a subject of severe societal oppression. Harassment, bullying, lack of acceptance and misunderstanding by friends and relatives is only a small part of what same-sex couples have to endure.
The problem is reflected in movies. The makers of these films try to show the life of such people from the inside, their feelings and thoughts, and prove that love is a condition that sometimes occurs even between two men.
Here is a selection of movies about same-sex love from Soap2Day.
