During his training, Lasse Nielson said he prefered to speak through images rather than writing. Shortly after he graduated he produced his first film La' os være. He collaborated with the Danish composed Sebastian in many of his works. You Are Not Alone (Du er ikke alene) is a unique 1970s film. For those of you who enjoy coming of age videos as much as I do you may relate to my appreciation of the relashionship between the two boy protagonists form, their unique attributes, their ability to do so many things, their ability to be playful and serious at all stages of the movie.

Nielson's films are Danish, and among most Europeans, South and Central Americans... actually, most of the world that is not English speaking, young boys relashionships is a right of passage, not an abuse. Boys being curious about it and wanting to esperience love when they're young is part of the normal culture. And, the idea of a boy being curious about his sexuality is considered noble.You'll find it in a LOT of movies, with the 13/14 year old boy having his first real experience. And the general cultural impression of this is, "Yep, that makes sense."
