Free Fall -- Poster


With a promising law enforcement career and a child on the way, Marc's life is 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, Marc finds himself in a state of free fall, unable to make anyone happy anymore least of all himself.

If not in reality, then at least in movies (End-of-year review: Queer Cinema 2013)

FREE FALL - Germany's answer to BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN - is part of a new wave of powerful German cinema. Stephan Lacant's first feature film 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.
