Jean-Claude Schlim – House of Boys (2009)

House of Boys is a 2009 Luxembourgian-German drama film directed and written by Jean-Claude Schlim, starring Layke Anderson, Benn Northover and Udo Kier. The film follows the story of Frank, a gay teenager in the 80’s who runs away from his home to start a new life and later his struggle against the recently discovered AIDS.

The film soundtrack uses music from a number of renowned artists like Cockney Rebel, Jimmy Sommerville, Klaus Nomi, Roy Orbison, Spandau Ballet, Soft Cell, Udo Kier, Romy Haag, Dangerous Muse, and ends with “Là-bas” (Somewhere) (music by Cyril Collard and lyrics by Corine Blue) and performed by Nyco Lilliu.

Note: Although featuring some French, German, and Luxembourgish, “House of Boys” is mostly in English and does not really need subs. Most of the non-English is during song sequences.
