Her cousin came to visit
2 August 2013 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

The film opens with our hero Cibrâil going out for a run, training for a marathon. Christine, played by Martina Hesse, asks Cibrâil (Sinan Hancili) if he can pick up her cousin Stefan (Peter Beck), who is coming for a visit. The script is quite sparse, and many of the scenes take place outside in Berlin. Cibrâil sees their houseguest having an adventure in the park, and is intrigued... and there is tension for the next couple of days. You'll have to watch the film to see how things are resolved, but pay attention, because its only 70 minutes long. The director, Tor Iben keeps putting a sculpture in our view - a large statue of two men. And later, at a cookout, we seem to focus on those sausages on the grill for an extra long time... or maybe it was just my imagination. Calling doctor freud. In seventy minutes, there isn't much time for character development, and Iben packs a lot into that time. It's a fun watch. I was worried for a bit that this might turn into a typical stereotype of a gay themed film of the 70s or 80s, but I was pleasantly surprised. Hope to see more like this one from Iben and from TLA. This was the first full length film for Hancili and Hesse, and it looks like Beck had done mostly TV and short films until now.
