Cibrâil, a young policeman, is living happily with his girlfriend in Berlin. He is well integrated in society despite his Turkish background. One day his girlfriend's cousin comes to stay and Cibrâil's life is turned upside down.
This film is about the encounter and the subsequent erotic tension between a hunky doorman and a college guy.
Though "Doorman" is short and low budget, it is quite stylishly shot. A memorable scene is when the doorman has internal struggle in his staff room, the close up shot produces a vertigo inducing effect which is powerful and suited to the scene's atmosphere.
The character development is also done well. In the space of just 17 minutes, I have grown sympathetic of Diego, and I dislike Garrett. Diego is a convincing character, his fascination with Garrett, the subsequent confusion are portrayed well. The acting is great, the tension between the two characters are presented engagingly. I enjoyed this short film.
