Eight teens - four guys and four girls - are the best of friends. One summer, out of boredom they experiment with all manner of new means to entertain themselves. This degenerates into some extreme behaviour and will lead to tragedy.
An uncompromising and controversial short set in the Scandinavian suburbia on the hottest day of the summer. A sister reluctantly babysits her little brother. Two young boys catch her attention, and she makes a crucial decision.

What does life taste of? For joyful Nikki the answer is clear: of pleasure. Delightfully she enjoys this at every possible occasion, as she drives through the country looking for people and their stories for her video-blog.
In an early 20th century village, a painter with an unusual commission finds two pretty girls to model for him. The girls slowly come of age while exploring their sexuality and finding liberation in a repressed society.
Guilherme and Sofia, brother and sister, grow up sharing experiences and slowly discovering their sexuality. The thing that Sofia doesn't know is how far Guilherme will go to keep her inside his own perverse, dark and perfect circle.

August 2019. Frank recognizes his own story of twenty years ago in a recently published book. He remembers Marie, with whom he had a relationship before she moved to the United States and disappeared from his life. He sets out in search of her and finds himself in a USA petrified by a heat wave and lost in suspicion and political paranoia. He heads into the desert in pursuit of Marie. On his way he meets Liz, the literary agent and Nina, a sex worker who services her clients in elaborate scenarios and films the encounters. Nina feels attracted to Frank in a strange way. He starts to work for her as a cameraman. She sometimes performs with another young woman who very much resembles Marie, prompting even more tedious fugue-state philosophizing.Written by
Usually I start my reviews with a brief summary of the plot. In this case that's not possible, as the movie has no plot. As near as I can discern it's about a German man who is travelling across the US. The remainder seems to consist of random interludes.
Lacking a plot is a distinct drawback in terms of viewer engagement, and you can count me as one of the unengaged.
This movie is random, pointless, pretentious nonsense, basically.
