Javier Bardem has portrayed five gay/bisexual characters. What I appreciate in his approach is that he does not change it from when he is playing someone straight. His performances are honest and never cruel or judgmental. There is no repulsion. Before anything else in this film Reinaldo Arenas was shown as a writer first. It was captivating and beautiful and implemented different abstract ways of telling the true story of an abstract person.
