Testosterone is a dramatic film from 2003 that follows the story of a man named Dean Seagrave, played by David Sutcliffe, who is trying to unravel the mystery of his missing Argentine lover Pablo. The film is directed by David Moreton and written by James Robert Baker and Dennis Hensley. The movie starts with Dean waking up one day to find that his partner of four years, Pablo, has disappeared without a trace. The two were living together in Argentina at the time, where Pablo was working on a novel. Dean is an American and has traveled to Buenos Aires to be with Pablo. However, he soon realizes that something is not right, as Pablo seems to have vanished without a trace.

Dean starts his investigation by going through Pablo's things and talking to his friends and colleagues. He discovers that Pablo had been having an affair with a woman named Sofia, played by Celina Font, and had been using her apartment as a place to write. Sofia is initially hostile to Dean, but he manages to establish a rapport with her and finds out more about Pablo's life and habits.

Dean's search for Pablo takes him on a journey through the streets of Buenos Aires, where he encounters a colorful cast of characters, including a drag queen named Miss Gabriel, who becomes his confidant and advisor. He also meets a mysterious man named Angelo, played by Antonio Sabato Jr., who seems to know more about Pablo's disappearance than he is letting on.

As Dean delves deeper into the mystery, he begins to uncover a web of lies and deceit that has been spun around Pablo. He discovers that Pablo had been leading a double life, and that his feelings for him may not have been as sincere as Dean had thought. The movie explores complex themes of love, loyalty, and identity, as Dean is forced to confront the truth about himself and his relationship with Pablo.

The film is shot in a stylistic and atmospheric manner, with beautiful shots of Buenos Aires and moody interior scenes. The music, which is a mix of Argentine tango and contemporary pop, adds to the film's sense of place and mood. The performances of the three leads are excellent, with Sutcliffe giving a particularly nuanced portrayal of a man struggling with his emotions and his desire for the truth.

Overall, Testosterone is a compelling and thought-provoking movie that offers a fresh take on the genre of romantic drama. It offers a nuanced commentary on issues of masculinity and nationality, as Dean's identity as an American in Argentina plays a significant role in his quest for the truth. The movie is well worth watching, particularly for those interested in explorations of queer identity and relationships.
