WATCH: “Free Fall” — The German “Brokeback Mountain”

Hanno Koffler (Summer Storm) and Max Riemelt (Before The Fall) co-star as a pair of cops who fall in love in this German gay romance which has been compared to Brokeback Mountain for its aching masculine portrayal of forbidden love.

Straight guy Marc (Koffler) is expecting his first child with his girlfriend Bettina (Katharina Schüttler) when he suddenly starts having feelings for the free-spirited Kay (Reimelt). A hard-hitting and extremely sexy tale of coming out, Free Fall is a terrific debut feature from talented (and straight) director Stephen Lacant.

Out today on digital (and coming to DVD March 4th), Free Fall is this week’s WolfeOnDemand.com Movie of the Week. Watch the trailer above and then rent or download it directly from WolfeOnDemand.com and other fine digital platforms now.

      The Germans always do male homosexuality really well. They’re not really into feminized gays or drag queens like the British are.

      More hets trading a gay sexuality to win awards. They didn’t make this film because they care about gay people, they want a Palme d’Or, an Oscar, or a Silver Bear. I’ll stick with queer filmmakers, thank you very much.

      Sorry, what the fuck is a “masculine portrayal” of gay love? As opposed to feminine portrayal of gay love?

      @Mr. E. Jones:

      So in other words, a white director shouldn’t have black actors in their movies? Male directors shouldn’t do a story about strong women? Etc… Ridiculous. Brokeback Mountain, the Wedding Banquet etc… were all made by straights

      I saw this film at the San Francisco LGBT Film Festival and it’s really good…worth a rental or perhaps even purchase. It’s authentic and sexy and doesn’t pander to the audience. Highly recommended.

      @Mr. E. Jones: It’s a good film. Who cares about who the filmmakers sleep with?

      @Niall: “masculine portrayal of forbidden love” = the nicer way of saying “straight acting.”

      I think it better had the sentence read: “…this masculine-rich German gay romance which has been compared to Brokeback Mountain for its aching portrayal of forbidden love.”

      saw it; meh. it’s ok. More or less the same tired story you always see. Confused gay/bi guy gets involved with another guy, lives double life, has crying wife wondering where he is. Shit hits fan, Blah blah blah.

      Watch “Hawaii” by Marco Berger instead.

      @stranded: sure the storyline was an over-used, recycled one, but the acting was top notch, good cinematography, it flowed well and had a great ending.

      @Jackhoffsky: That’s what I thought too, but I wanted to at least give Queerty the benefit of doubt that it’s not what they meant.

      @Niall: How it plays out in my head: “Love” as a concept unable to be personified and thus cannot take on the characteristics of masculine or feminine. However, the individual participants can take on (in this case) masculinity.

      As always, the exception would be in poetic verse when everything can be personified for symbolism, metaphor, or simple creative description. A journalistic portrayal of information (even if biased and slanted) should steer clear as unambiguous descriptions can often be misinterpreted.

      @RK: If you order direct from the distributor — WolfeVideo.com — it ships two weeks before the March 4th streetdate.
