Film director Nina wants to shoot a movie about love and sex. She invites her actor-friends Hans and Marie for screen tests in a huge, run-down apartment in Berlin for a couple of days. There are problems with the first recordings and it turns out that the project is not so easy to implement. Acting and reality mingle into a dangerous melange. For Nina love is not necessarily a matter of emotion - she is rather looking for an authentic depiction of sex. The intimate collaboration turns into experiments with film, love and bodies and finally has an impact on the private relationships between the three of them. It seems that the boundaries between acting and reality begin to disappear. Ultimately, Nina Bader declared the project a failure.Written by
It's really a brilliant film about sex, love and desire. With great music, located in Berlin and yes, with graphic sex scenes, but no porn! I've seen this film at cinema, also on DVD (with interesting bonus material. It's shot in an unusual ratio, in 4 : 3. But I think, it works, because it looks like a portrait of the 3 heroes, because of this format. It's German, but I think, this is of course not a normal German movie. Bedways is much more international, really! Some words about the actors: The performance of the lead actress Miriam Mayet is awesome! She has a remarkable presence, not only at the great masturbation scene in one take, without a cut for around 10 minutes! BEDWAYS is for me a fascinating film project and real independent cinema from a wild brand new director from Berlin/ Germany, called RP Kahl! May be in some areas you will see this movie only in a "soft" version. So check out the original DVD ore the original festival print from Germany!
