In pre-united Berlin, a high school teacher tries hard to settle into heterosexual 'normality', and even marries a fellow teacher, but finds himself unable to resist his attraction to a younger man. Set in an environment where horrifying queer bashing is almost acceptable behaviour, this is a brave, honest and hard-hitting movie, even if its message is somewhat simplistically articulated.
