Sylt in winter.
Cem, trainee with the islands Department of Sanitation, and Jesús, a stray in search of his place in the world they meet and decide to give each other a chance. But the more they begin to mean to each other, the more those around them shake their heads in disbelief. The two young men come up with four rules for their relationship: thou shalt not smoke dope; thou shalt not vomit; thou shalt not tell lies; thou shalt not die.
Unfortunately, they are not able to honor all four.
As captivating as watching a tin of paint…
Two young men…with absolutely nothing in common, embark on a relationship.
There is the dope-smoking anorexic (Jesus) and the work-conscious Cem. The dope-smoking anorexic is a detestable twat who needs a good kick up the ass…unfortunately, he doesn’t receive the aforementioned kick up the ass and the director tortures his audience with lengthy scenes of NOTHING.
Dreariness has never felt so dreary. A pointless film.
