Plot Synopis/review
1 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Where the French take a bit of a laissez-faire approach to films of a sexual theme, the Germans can almost always be sure to approach it from the philosophical. That said, if you are going into this very appropriately-titled film expecting lots of skin or your typical American gay film, you will be much disappointed. The center of this slowly evolving drama is a love triangle. There is not a lot of dialogue, but for me, because of the deftness of the acting and direction, the characters do become fully developed and realized people by the stunning and brilliant ending. There are also some brilliantly incorporated views of the city. An interesting watch.
