Sex, Pity, and Loneliness

Lars Montag

Germany, 2017, 119 minutes

This wicked satire about contemporary German urbanites is a darkly funny view of the way we live now. Director Lars Montag interweaves the stories of 13 characters. Among them are an angry, disgraced teacher who goes ballistic because his supermarket doesn’t carry his favorite flavor of Kettle Chips; a preening racist cop and his equally racist sort-of girlfriend; an unhappily married beekeeper who discovers his long dormant desire for men; the beekeeper’s runaway teenage daughter, who’s pursued by a randy young Arab immigrant and a self-flagellating Christian lad; a sex-for-hire couple who insist on dressing in white; and a newly divorced woman whose encounter with a young hustler does not go according to her very specific set of erotic instructions. A cheerfully bleak exploration of frustrated desire, rage, solipsism, and misdirected love, Montag’s ambitious fresco will elicit laughter, gasps, and perhaps self-reflection.—Palm Springs International Film Festival
