M/M

Matthew is a young Canadian who moves to Berlin to start a new life. In the beginning, however, things are not so simple: he feels very lonely in a city that seems very foreign and cold to him. But then he meets Matthias, a good looking, charming boy, who totally represents the person Matthew wants to be. He soon becomes Matthew's object of desire, someone he needs to have in his life. So Matthew goes through some kind of metamorphosis, changing his appearance to look like the mirror image of Matthias, his obsession. After a serious motorcycle accident Matthias is in a coma and for Matthew this is the perfect opportunity to take his place. This is a thriller, which, like the story it tells, is shape-shifting, containing elements of psychological drama and video art. The movie is visually intriguing, with contrasts between sculpted male bodies, cityscapes and grey skies, accompanied by a strong techno soundtrack.
