Product Description

Product Description

A tale of star-crossed lovers with a difference, Sabine Bernardi's richly textured ode to teenage love takes a fresh and unique look at a romantic encounter that transcends boundaries.

When 20-year-old Lukas arrives in Cologne, a summer of late nights, clubs heaving with hot guys and insurmountable self-discovery awaits. You see, Lukas has a heavy secret that he has chosen to leave behind, and best friend Ine knows this too well. Like most young adults their age, the pair indulge in parties and alcohol with abandon, helping Lukas to overcome what makes him different from everyone else.

However, when hunky neighbourhood catch Fabio appears, a heated attraction between the two boys gradually develops - until Fabio accesses the secret of Lukas's identity. Despite their differences, will love conquer all?

It is not easy to talk about complex issues such as transsexuality without falling into stereotypes, but this film fails to address the crudity of the injury and the pain it generates, and the gentleness and delicacy of love. Yet the film is a perfect balance, showing how painful is the path that leads us to accept ourselves for who we are and above all to break the wall of prejudice and fear that tends to isolate those who are different. A movie not to be missed!

I have a hard time finding movies I like, and this was a chance find that seemed rather interesting. It exceeded EVERY expectation I had, and is now one of my favourite films. I won't go into detail, as I don't want to spoil it but a LOT of issues to do with transgender etc is covered here. It's something different to all other films and covers the information the way a documentary would- but with the romance of Lukas and Fabio. It really is an exceptional film and will keep you enthralled to the last second. I HIGHLY recommend this to EVERYONE. You honestly are sat here, hoping and praying it works out between Fabio and Lukas- You just get so sucked in!

I have seen "Romeos" on a screen in a small cinema and was quite impressed as I didn't think it would be such a good flick. I am not very into transgender cinema, so it's only a second film I saw in this matter. The first will be amazing "Transamerica".
"Romeos" is a story about intolerance and fight against it, about seeking for love, about the importance of friendship. The story has no flows and all actors did great job. What do you need more?
Two thumbs up.

In Cologne two strikingly different young men meet. It is obvious at a very early stage that there is an attraction between them. The question is, how will the super hunk Fabio be able to handle the fact that the object of his attraction, Lukas, is not a complete man?
This is an extremely compelling story and the topic is dealt with in an admirable way. A really great film you will not forget.

Romeos is a very fresh, appealing film from Germany with a lively camera style, full of saturated colours and changes of camera angle, with expressive close-ups, to convey the immediacy and changeable nature of young friendships. Here this tendency is even more pronounced because of the transgender nature of the main character, and the actor does an amazing job of taking us into his insecurities and feelings, their aching urgency and ups and downs. For all that, it remains a bright film, with quite a lot of ensemble scenes, yet it keeps a sense of shape, unlike some films of this type. Above all, director Sabine Bernardi makes it an uplifting experience, ultimately, without overlooking any of the insensitivity and cruelty that can be a part of the experience of this age group too - and others, for that matter. Rick Odon is really extraordinary, looking a bit like a young Kevin Bacon, with all the sensitivity in his expression of a young faun. The boy he likes is also appealing in the right sort of way - sexy, but with a feeling that he really might turn out to be a bit of a let-down; he looks a little like the young Romain Duris! The best female friend is also a stalwart presence, if one whose friendship does not always run smoothly either. I recommend this film strongly as a very enjoyable drama that covers a number of issues with a light touch, even as it takes you into the suffering of the character. I wish it had had a few extras - it would have been interesting to hear the director talk about the background to the project - but it is well worth buying in any case.

I am still pretty new to the foreign/gay/trans-sexuality type films and am buying what Amazon is recommending for me at the moment till I can work out what I like and what I don't.

The first half of this film was a little slow for me tbh. But 50mins into the film when it all came out i did start to really feel sorry for him & the 2nd half of the film was really amazing and I really did enjoy it.

I will be watching this film again and if you want to give up half way thought please don't, trust me on that. You will really love it by the end.

Firstly - Don't be put off this film is in German! There are English subtitles and as you become engrossed into the film, you forget they are there!

Secondly - Wow.. What an amazing film. The film captures the essence of transitioning from a woman and into a man beautifully and although I am sure every story is different, this was just fascinating to watch. The acting is superb and Rick Okon and Maximilian Befort have an strong chemistry which kept me wondering will they, wont they get together or will he or wont he find out the truth.

Thoroughly enjoyed this film and I highly recommend this to anyone.

This is a film which conveys what it must be like, not just to undergo a transformation of sexual identity, but the terror of exposure that goes with it. It is difficult enough to come out as gay but to present yourself as one person and then to be found, or thought, to be another must be exceptionally hard. That emotional journey is brilliantly conveyed in this film which obviously romantices the subject but without pulling its punches on the way.
