G: Lost in Frankfurt 2015
1h 28min | Drama | 11 June 2015 (Germany)
G is a small study on the excitement a new life can bring. The film talks about the many levels of sensing and experiencing the complexity of the big city with its electronic music, clubs and the licentious sex between men under the influence of the fashionable drug G (GBL). Trying to find the very essence of life and love without ever getting enough of each, and the sneaking onset of disillusionment.
Forget about gay tour guides to the German city of Frankfurt. Simply watch this film and you’ll discover all you need to know. A recent newbie to town meets a local dyed-in-the-wool pleasure seeking resident who takes him on a trip of sex, drugs (G) and hedonism. The film doesn’t moralize about these activities, but simply demonstrates the good times, and the potential bad consequences, they entail, from which the viewer can draw their own conclusions.
There is not a lot of dialogue, which favours the focus on the body language between the characters. The film is underscored by fantastically suitable electronic music, almost all the way throughout. Sometimes it’s like listening to a music album whilst watching a homo- erotic porn movie or a virtual tour guide of the gay environs of Frankfurt.
I like this type of format of film, very much so.
