“Exceptionally hot love scenes (and full-frontal nudity)… a powerful dramatization of a passionate gay affair.” — Queerty.com [Movies You Shouldn't Miss]
It’s been called the German Brokeback Mountain for its portrayal of forbidden love between two police cadets — Marc (Hanno Koffler, Summer Storm) and fellow male cop Kay (Max Riemelt, Before The Fall).
With a promising law enforcement career and a child on the way, Marc’s life is all going according to plan until he meets the free spirited Kay. They start jogging together, bringing a breath of fresh air into Marc’s life — and, for the first time, he develops feelings for a man. Torn between the life he knows so well and the exhilaration of this new adventure, his life rapidly spins out of control. In this state of free fall, it seems Marc cannot make anyone happy anymore. Least of all himself.
Free Fall is part of a new wave of powerful German cinema. As director Stephan Lacant’s first feature film, Free Fall tells the dramatic tale of a man who finds himself outside the clear-cut boundaries of his world. Exceptional performances from Hanno Koffler, Max Riemelt and Katharina Schüttler provide a moving portrayal of what happens when life plans crumble and there is no way left to fulfil the needs of the people you love.
