Synopsis

From Beginning to End
Two men find love in defiance of convention in this drama from writer and director Aluizio Abranches. Six-year-old Thomas (Gabriel Kaufmann) is best friends with his half-brother, twelve-year-old Francisco (Lucas Cotrim). Julieta (Julia Lemmertz) is delighted that her son Francisco gets along so well with her second husband Alexandre (Fabio Assuncao) and his son Thomas, but a few neighbors wonder if the boys are closer than is healthy. As the boys grow older, the bond between them grows stronger, and after the death of their parents, 21-year-old Thomas (Rafael Cardoso) and 27-year-old Francisco (Joao Gabriel Vasconcellos) are finally willing to acknowledge their physical attraction to one another. After they've become lovers, Thomas gets some exciting news -- a competitive swimmer, he's been accepted to join Brazil's Olympic team. However, as part of his training program, he's expected to spend the next three years at a camp for championship swimmers in Russia. Can Thomas stand to be taken away from the support of his friend, his brother, and his lover? Do Começo ao Fim (aka From Beginning to End) was an official selection at the 2010 San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
