A film about the male/male or gay love in post-war Germany. Following the end of WW2, two men find themselves still not free and subject to criminal prosecution due their love for each other. We won’t ruin the rest, but this is a good flick to learn about post-war Europe and the persecution of gay and bi men. We got a screener and loved it. The film is gritty and has a heavy dose of realism. So be prepared to be entertained and learn a lot.
