Hanno Koffler & Max Riemelt in Freier Fall (Free Fall)
Those of you who saw Sommersturm (Summer Storm) at Frameline29 in 2005 will recognize Hanno Koffler, who played Malte, the lothario of the gay rowing team, and now stars in Freier Fall (Free Fall) as Marc, a police cadet with a pregnant girlfriend who finds himself irresistibly drawn to fellow cadet Kay (Max Riemelt). Marc’s two lives are on a collision course. Koffler and Riemelt have a real chemistry together, but unfortunately the story takes some quite predictable turns, and, despite some current details, feels somehow dated. Not all that I had hoped for, but all the same Highly Recommended.
