Storyline

Seventy years after his grandfather escapes from Nazi Germany to Palestine, Israeli documentary director Tomer Heymann returns to the country of his ancestors to present his film "Paper Dolls" at the Berlin International Film Festival, and there meets a man who will change his life. This 48-hour love affair, originating in Berghain Panorama Bar, develops into a significant relationship between Tomer and Andreas Merk, a German dancer. When Andreas decides to move to Tel-Aviv, he not only has to cope with a new partner, but to manage the complex realities of life in Israel and his personal connection to it as a German citizen. Tomer's mother, descendant of German immigrants was born and lived all her life in a small Israeli village, where she raised five sons. One by one, she watches her children leave the country she and her family helped to build, and now cannot help but try to influence the life of Tomer, the one son who remains. I SHOT MY LOVE tells a personal but universal love ... Written by Anonymous

I was so thoroughly bored that I Almost Shot Myself.
23 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

I have just finished watching "I Shot My Love".

Maybe I missed something but I was so thoroughly bored by this self indulgent sedative that I almost shot myself. Tomer says nothing of interest, and keeps himself well concealed behind his handy-cam in this one sided view of his life. And what a life! Dull, boring & uneventful gives way to something a bit more dull, boring & uneventful. And on and on it goes. It's so bloody uneventful I couldn't stop watching just in case something of some note could eventually be gleaned. It doesn't! Maybe Tomer's German lover did change his life but I couldn't pick it. His adoring mother puts up with the camera and strokes Tomer's ego throughout the film. The boyfriend attempts a little bit of homespun philosophy and strokes Tomer's ego throughout the film. That is it. The End. How does stuff like this make it's way out of Film School and a half decent film festival let alone be distributed anyone, anywhere? This is (hopefully) the last word in hand held auto-biographical home movies. Do not on any account waste time with this tedious drivel.
