Storyline

While Sasha's mother is dreaming of her son's great career as a pianist, Sasha is left speechless for other reasons: his beloved piano teacher Mr. Weber tells him, he is leaving town forever. Sasha is heartbroken, and the only person in whom he can confide his feelings, is his best friend, Jiao. As a son of an Ex-Yugoslav family even in Germany one rarely lives outside the closet, and Sasha is grateful that his homophobic father believes Jiao is his girlfriend. But what begins as a useful lie becomes a large and complicated one, when Sasha's younger brother, begins an affair with Jiao. All lies get exposed and what appears to be a catastrophe is in fact the revelation of new possibilities in the lives of Sasha's family. Written by Dennis Todorovic

Even in modern Germany gay boys have problems
18 May 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This film portrays a boy becoming a man and breaching out of the closet, whilst being torn between two (or more?) cultures.

In a way Sasha is very stereotypical: The more sensitive, more educated, more artistic gay guy in a rough, ignorant, stupid and very heterosexual environment. I guess the story has been told thousands of times. Yet this is a very nice version of it. The director catches very nicely a sense of lightness; even though this film hasn't a typical happy end. It's also quite nice to see a film about a group of immigrants that haven't been in many films yet.

The actor portraying Sacha sometimes overacts a bit in my opinion, but he does manage to get you involved in his character. I was particularly struck by the acting of the mother, that seemed quite intense to me. The piano teacher is brilliantly cast as a self confident gay guy to fall in love with.

There is artistic use of colour and lightning that paints the atmosphere in the cold German city. It's nice but maybe a bit too much.

There's no explicit nudity and sex, and quite little violence in this film. I think that there's also no need for that to tell the story. In this way the film is suitable for all audiences, which is I think what it should be.
