Body Electric
Modesty comes in many forms, but it’s most appreciated when matched by a generosity of spirit. “Body Electric,” Marcelo Caetano’s debut as feature director, is a character study of a 23-year-old gay man who hasn’t figured out what he wants out of life, realized with sensitivity as well as a complete lack of pretension. Affection for the protagonist remains constant as he flows between groups, accumulating lovers who become friends, and searches for a way through the kind of healthy uncertainty that too often, in less understanding hands, is presented as a negative trait. Although the focus occasionally wanders, “Body Electric” is a satisfying, warmhearted film whose understated charms leave a pleasant glow. It’s a pity viewership will largely be limited to LGBT outlets, since mainstream festivals would also get a charge from its low-key current. - Variety
