Love in a German refugee center
20 October 2020 | by Red-125See all my reviews

The German film Futur Drei was shown in the U.S. with the title No Hard Feelings (2020). (For some reason, IMDb lists the title as Wir. No explanation.) The movie was co-written and directed by Faraz Shariat.

Benny Radjaipour plays Parvis Joon, a young man of Iranian descent, who was born in Germany. For a relatively trivial offense he is sentenced to 120 hours of community service, which he completes at a refugee center.

Banafshe Hourmazdi as Banafshe and Eidin Jalali as Amon are brother and sister refugees, who live in the center and are seeking asylum in Germany. Amon and Parvis are gay, and they fall in love.

The plot of the movie tries to answer the difficult question of whether love is possible in the context of a pending forcible return to a country where gays are under attack.

I thought the movie was excellent and the entire film was clearly the work of a talented director and talented actors.

We saw this movie as part of Rochester's wonderful ImageOut LGBTQ Film Festival. (Shown virtually.) The movie has a borderline IMDb rating of 6.9. I thought it was much better than that, and rated it 9.
