Short Film “Confessions” Beautifully Tells The Story of First Love

By Stephen Fuchs on

A new short film by a young German filmmaker has hit YouTube, and over the course of five minutes, it will take you on a beautiful journey of what its like to experience your first gay love, driven by music and visuals alone. The excitement of just holding hands for the first time, the butterflies of the first kiss… that is what is captured in “Confessions”.

Christopher Grigat wanted to capture the pure emotion of falling in love with his film, and while it is heavily focused on a gay couple, and the process of coming out, the intimacy felt is not exclusively gay.

Grigat’s artistic approach is very well executed, and is not meant to be a statement against discrimination but purely an expression of love.
