To Play Or To Die (1990) Dutch (English Subtitle)

Description: In this short motion picture, schoolboy Kees is intelligent, introvert and sensitive, but gets ridiculed verbally and physically at an all-boys school by mindlessly cocky class mates and even insensitive teachers, especially in gym, where his physical weakness is mercilessly abused to make him a defenceless laughing stock in front of his smirking peers. His awakening sexual interest goes to boys, and in particular to Charel, a beautiful athletic classmate who probably feels an undetermined interest but would never risk admitting (possibly not even to himself) having any gay or bi appreciation, least of all for a ‘sissy’, and thus remains unresponsive to shy Kees’ overtures. When the hunk finally comes over to Kees’ place while his parents are away, a desperate disappointment with a tragical twist is in the making.
