Their friends arrive and an all night party begins. Hans can't resist joining the party, though he knows that Günther has never really gotten over him. High on music and real Absinth, emotions and desires mix with jealousies to create a deadly pact.
Daniel Brühl (Germany's answer to Jake Gyllenhaal) leads this young, talented and attractive cast in this beautifully crafted film based on a true story.
Well, let's not spoil the plot, but the answer is not what you might think. Suffice to say, this is less a love-triangle and more of love squared. We follow events based on a true story, from the Friday afternoon of the lads' original arrival at the summer cottage to the tragedy unravelled on the following Monday morning.
The German title is `Was nutzt die Liebe in Gedanken?', what use is it just thinking of love? It is a line taken up by Hilda from Paul's own poetry. Wonderfully acted by all concerned (as well as Daniel Bruhl and August Diehl, the film also has the beautiful Dane Thure Lindhardt as Hans), and shot in a golden sepia tone, this film has a brooding and foreboding intensity that captures the viewer's interest from the start.
Alas, despite a `Making of' appearing in the credits, there are no extras with my copy of the DVD.
