Storyline

Matthew is a young Canadian new to Berlin. He's come to make a fresh start, but he feels the isolation of living in a strange, new city. When he meets Matthias, he is entranced. Beautiful and charismatic, Matthias is everything Matthew wants to be. Soon Matthew's interest escalates, becoming an obsession. He begins to transform himself to embody the object of his desire, cutting his hair, getting new clothes. When Matthias gets into a motorcycle accident, the opportunity is too perfect. Matthew is Matthias. In a coma in the hospital, Matthias' waking life, dreams and memories blur. Where the real ends, the artificial begins. Written by Drew Lint

Ridiculous film
17 September 2018 | by SteverBSee all my reviews

I suspect another reviewer here is part of the cast or crew because there was nothing mesmerizing, riveting, or fascinating to see here. This was a vanity project for Drew Lint. That's the only thing that can explain this film. Even at 81 minutes, it's too long. The plot and direction is so disjointed, it's hard to know if it's intentional or just many, many continuity errors. I think the viewer is supposed to not know if you're watching reality or a dream. After awhile, it simply doesn't matter -- the dream/reality hook is used so many times, it's laughable. These characters have NO motivation for half the things they do and the ending just made me shake my head. Even the credit sequences are annoying. Watch if you want to, but I wouldn't recommend it.
