excerpt, more at my location - Shining a light on the issue of social misconception, and the pressures created by society's desire for obligatory conformism, Nicolas Flessa's short German film plunges straight to the heart of the matter of repressed sexuality. Set in the Berlin district of Neukoelln, otherwise known as the city's "ghetto," Flessa looks at the intertwining lives of three young adults as they come to terms with their individual feelings and the implications this may have on them and those around them.
While there are areas for potential reworking and growth that would allow the drama to be exploited to its most engaging, Straight proves to be anything but, as it weaves the lives of its three characters together in a delicate yet brutally believable manner.
