Sebastiane is a full length motion picture about a group of Roman soldiers who are exiled, and satiate their urges with homosexuality. Loosely based on the life of Roman soldier Sebastian, Sebastiane (Leonardo Treviglio) is a faithful of the Roman army in the 4th century. Along with 8 others, his rank is stripped, and he is banished to a remote, unfamiliar island. Alone amongst themselves, and without any women around, the men turn to one other for comfort and sexual fulfillment. The strong centurion Severus (Barney James) takes a liking in the young Sebastiane, but being Christian, Sebastiane negates the advances, causing him to be outcast from the rest of the colony. As the story develops, he becomes increasingly open to the urging, and the two men find themselves wrestling with other's interest, redefining lust and discovering passion in a story laden with homoeroticism and sexual tension. Paul Humfress' Derek Jarman's vivid depiction of same sex love was quite controversial for its 1976 release, but is as renowned for its stunning imagery as for its polarizing content. With a fantastic score by Brian Eno to boot, Sebastiane is a closet classic and an unforgettable experience.moreless
