Set in a sun-burnished Brazil, two boys, Francisco and his younger half-brother (same mother, different fathers) Thoms, are being raised in upper class comfort in Rio by their doting mother. Five years apart, the boys are best friends and unusually close to each other so much so that their intimacy brings vocal concerns from relatives that maybe they are too close. But the parents reluctantly brush away the concerns. Fast-forward several years with Francisco and Thoms now strikingly handsome, bronzed young men and their childhood intensity has evolved into a torrid sexual relationship. But when Thomas is offered a chance to train for the Brazilian swim team in Russia for a long period of time, the proposed separation brings fears that their love is threatened.

In-House Review - Jul 27 2010
There are not a lot of topics involving consenting adults that can really shock these days but this searing romantic drama about two brothers who love- incestuously ? may well be one of them! Set in a sun-burnished Brazil, two boys, Francisco and his... Read More

From Beginning to End is one of the warmest, most poignantly beautiful movies I have ever seen. I positively adore it. The chemistry the leads have together makes it fully believable that these two men couldn't not be helplessly, devotedly, in love... Read More

This movie is one of three that are the most outstanding gay films during the past year. The other two are Plan B and Undertow. From Beginning to End and Plan B are Brazilian productions, Undertow is Peruvian. That's interesting: my three favorit... Read More

a touching and moving love story with the deepest of bonds. while the subject matter may push limits for those with braces on their brains, this movie is a must see. one of the best gay themed movies i've seen in several years.

I think the movie is one of the best i have seen in years. The beauty they have when they touch each other as grown ups is breath taking. they are obviously beautiful men, and two brothers touching each other would make people think of porn.

Well acted! Sexy without being raunchy!

Review by RFH

A beautiful film. A love story not just between the brothers but also between the mother and the boys' fathers. Everyone, the swim coach, parents & relatives all accept the situation. A perfect movie with a happy ending.

Review by Ron in Maine

From what I heard, this film opened to huge audiences. I don't have any information on whether or not those audiences were predominantly gay or not. While I don't think you have to be gay to enjoy this film, I believe you would have to be quite ope... Read More

-This review contains spoilers-

From Beginning to End, the famed 'incest' love story from Brazil (and Argentina) was just painful to watch, and my expectations were pretty low because of the trailer and stuff I had read about it that kind ... Read More
