Chill Out

A FILM BY Andreas Struck


Johann is a gay thief, hustling older men for money and moving from city to city when the law takes notice. Max is a lonely young security guard, instantly attracted to Anna, a thirty-something insurance clerk. They all live in Berlin and move to the rhythms of New Germany - a society redefining itself after the Cold War era. Johann, Anna and Max become intertwined in a triangular relationship sharing their love, affections, bodies and anxieties in Anna's apartment. The three friends spend most of their time in clubs dancing and making themselves open to whatever opportunities cross their paths. Like the style of the club music - trance - the characters flow in and around each other in a way that makes them rethink themselves socially, culturally and sexually. A dynamic view of a triangular relationship and the myth of metropolitan life.
