So...I watched this movie tonight because it was about gay people, had a happy ending, and had a Portuguese angle...it switched back and forth between Spanish and Portuguese.

The only problem is that the Portuguese was limited to the conflicted guy's interaction with his wife (girlfriend?)...the boys (as children) and men (as adults) spoke Spanish...and the wife and he spoke Spanish in public settings because this was set in Argentina. So I heard some Portuguese, but mostly it was Spanish.

Nothing earth-shattering here, but happy ending -- boy falls in love with boy as child...they find each other again as adults. I liked how the movie went back and forth between adults and children, sometimes repeating the very same scene as the adults find their way back to each other.

The title is 'Tidelands' -- which in Virginia we would call 'Tidewater' -- meaning the estuaries where the boys grew up.
