“Stop kidding yourself. Just admit that you’re gay. It isn’t easy for me…”
“I’m not gay, Kay. Got it? It was just a one-off with you. So stay away from me. Stay away from me, Kay.”
In a Nutshell:
‘Free Fall’ (Freier Fall) is Germany’s response to ‘Brokeback Mountain’ about a tale of forbidden love between two male partners.
The powerful film portrays what it means to lead a secret double life. It centers on a doomed extramarital gay love affair between soon-to-be-father police officer Kay (Hanno Koffler) and his colleague Marc (Max Reimelt). Brokeback Mountain’s cowboys are swapped out for policemen, and ‘fishing trips’ become secluded forest jogging sessions.
