Product Description

Product Description

Set in Berlin, film director Nina Bader wants to shoot a movie about love and sex and invites her actor-friends Hans and Marie for screen tests for a couple of days. For Nina love is not necessarily a matter of emotion she is rather looking for an authentic depiction of sex.

The intimate collaboration turns into experiments with film, love and bodies and finally has an impact on the private relationships between the three of them. It seems that the boundaries between acting and reality begin to disappear.

At times shocking and explicit, 'Bedways' is without doubt an unforgettable viewing experience.

this film has caused quite a storm at the film festivals it has played at...and within minutes of watching you will understand why...! the story is basically about how 2 actors who play lovers in a film fall for each other in real life and the art/life line blurs. the performances are fearless and i found the actresses particularly cute!

this is one of the most explicit dramas i have seen - more so than basic instinct for example. so if you are a bit shy with this kind of thing, it is something that might make you blush!

'Bedways' follows a woman who experiments with the use of film to document sexual relationships, after picking the chosen two actors, we see their awkward and personal rehearsals. However as the film progresses, it's clear that her own film is far from finished and hasn't progressed at all. With no scripts or characterisations prepared she is basically winging it and seeing what happens. With a lot of built up sexual tension being evident between all three characters, I have a funny feeling that a lot of foot taping and bottle wrapper ripping has been done due to sexual frustration.

I do not know if i loved this or hated it.. really totally unsure, one thing i do know is that it is very, very rude, don't watch it with your nan.

This might be one of the worst films I ever saw in the cinema. It tries very hard to be deep, sexy and cutting edge but fails in all aspects.

The acting is very wooden, but even better actors would struggle to convincingly convey the ridiculously unauthentic dialogue that fills this screenplay. Basically it is people from Berlin (it's very important that it's Berlin, as everything from Berlin is cool, uber-chique and hip, you know?) babbling pretentious and shallow things about life and love.

The few explicit sex scenes (don't be fooled by the title or the attention-drawing "Basic Instinct minus subtelty" cover, it's basically two scenes) are contrived and out of place, but still the best parrts of the film, as the character's stop talking for once.

There is no proper plot whatsoever, a fact that I wouldn't condemn for itself, but in this case the cineastic experiment just didn't work.

Do yourselves a favour and avoid this film.

This is the film that 9 songs tried to be but wasn't . A female film maker decides to shoot 2 actors having sex . What is the reality in acting having sex on screen , when does acting become actually having sex and how does this affect the voyeur watching . Its not an easy film to watch or understand . I much preferred it on a second viewing when I could understand the concepts more. its a thinking film , more than an erotic film , as all actors are in the realistic , very skinny , dirty nails etc than the glossy women of soft erotic.

UPDATE: There is now also a really explicit kind of remake of Bedways, also directed by RP Kahl, called REHEARSSALS. But there are only 100 copies in a strictly limited edition, but check it out!

Yes, I'm a fan of this film! It's really a brilliant film about sex, love and desire. With great music, located in Berlin and yes, with graphic sex scenes, but no porn! I've seen this film at cinema, also on the German DVD (with interesting bonus material. It's shot in an unusual ratio, in 4 : 3. But I think, it works, because it looks like a portrait of the 3 heroes, because of this format. It's German, but I think, this is of course not a normal German movie. Bedways is much more international, really! Some words about the actors: The performance of the lead actress Miriam Mayet is awesome! She has a remarkable presence, not only at the great masturbation scene in one take, without a cut for around 10 minutes! BEDWAYS is for me a fascinating film project and real independent cinema from a wild brand new director from Berlin/ Germany, called RP Kahl! May be in some areas you will see this movie only in a "soft" version ore in 16 : 9. So take for that ore check also out the original DVD ore the original festival print from Germany!
