In 1931, at the height of his artistic powers, Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein travels to Mexico to shoot a new film. Freshly rejected by Hollywood and under increasing pressure to return to Stalinist Russia, Eisenstein arrives at the city of Guanajuato. Chaperoned by his guide Palomino Cañedo, he vulnerably experiences the ties between Eros and Thanatos, sex and death, happy to create their effects in cinema, troubled to suffer them in life. Peter Greenaway's film explores the mind of a creative genius facing his passionate gay desires and fears of love, sex and death through ten passionate days that helped shape the rest of the career of one of the greatest masters of cinema.

Reasons to Buy

  1. Taking place over ten life-changing days, Eisenstein In Guanajuato revolves around the seminal filmmaker losing his virginity to a man at the age of 33.
  2. In pure Peter Greenaway style, this film features one of the longest and most intimate gay sex scenes we've ever seen in a movie. We don't want to give too much away, but it's graphic, powerful, cheeky and impossible to forget.
  3. The movie is also packed with full-frontal male nudity. Even before they take things to the next level, lead actors Elmer Back and Jose Montini are tempting each other in the buff.
