The young teacher Ernst Ostertag falls head over heels in love with the transvestite star Robi Rapp and finds himself torn between his bourgeois existence and his commitment to homosexuality.

    While I love the Euro-Gay movies, they are more dramatic and serious than the American ones. That doesn't make the american ones better. Why does every gay themed movie have to be about some kind of struggle and harsh process? American gay themed movies tend to delve into the struggles like: the matthew shepard story, were the world mine, brokeback, private romeo. Yet they also produce comedies, suspense, dramatic, silly ones (monster pies, 24 hours, eCupid, shelter, edge of 17, is it just me, trick) to not encase the gay film world in dramatic underworld-esque themes. Sooo back off.

    Europeans produce much better gay movies then Americans do.
  • Blake J 2014-08-22 19:18:46
    US LGBTQ films are so laughable when you compare them to European, even South American, films.

    Germany makes such great movies. All the good gay movies that have been coming out are German or foreign. 
  • L.L.Yaung 2014-08-01 00:35:23
    Germans and Dutch people makes really good gay movies.. Jorgens (Boys) is a perfect example.
