Prora, on the Baltic Sea. Mysterious, endless. In this deserted former Nazi holiday camp and communist military complex, teenagers Jan and Matthieu embark on an adventure that puts their friendship at risk.
The filming and camera angles were mesmerizing and made this short film that bit more fascinating. The story is one that holds many morals and shows a choice someone can make. In this it regards a male prostitute turning down work because he knows there's a child near by.
It's a truly touching bit of film, and all the actors are perfect and have utter conviction, although the child in my mind should have been younger with his script seemingly immature. Yet this works, it brings it a brutal honesty.
It is compelling from the start, and all the action is filmed mainly in one room, and this brings to it a sense of the claustrophobia all the characters must be feeling about different aspects of their life.
It was truly very enjoyable, and well worth watching.
