Arguably the sexiest and most romantic gay male film of 2013, The Last Match is set in a poor, steamy Havana and centers on an intense love affair between two hitherto heterosexual young men.
Reiner and Yosvani (Reinier Diaz and Milton Garcia) are best friends and soccer mates. Handsome Reinier, in order to support his mother, wife and their baby – as well as his gambling habit – prostitutes himself at night to older male foreigners along the waterfront. Meanwhile, the shy Yosvani is reluctantly engaged to a girl and lives with her and her bombastic loan shark father.
After a furtive kiss at a nightclub, the two young men, barely containing their pent-up desire, follow up with a lusty roof top encounter – where the two quickly fall hard for each other. And as their love intensifies, the challenge is not with them but with the unforgiving outside world… a world they so desperately want to escape from.
The two leads, Reinier Diaz and Milton Garcia, are charismatic and unforgettable as the super-charged lovers in this drama directed and co-written by Antonio Hens (Clandestinos).
