He's (Thomas Goersch) a sad, middle-aged loner who has filled the void
in his life - with teddy bears. She's (Ulrike Röder) the prostitute he
has called, and she's one who actually takes her time with her clients,
doesn't do rush jobs ... but he proves to be a rather difficult case, as
whatever she tries, it doesn't turn him on. Until he brings a teddy bear
to the bedroom ...
In a bit of a change from director Juval
Marlon's usual, rather grim output, this is something resembling a comedy,
even if a very dark one with a violent ending. But as a director, Marlon
is versatile enough to not just make this into a moronic joke, instead he
gives his main character time to unfold, draws the viewer into his world,
even without any dialogue. And that both actors really fill their roles,
make them believable, really helps with bringing the film including its
punchline over the finish line.
Surely not a film for everyone, but if
you're into twisted humour, than this one's definitely for you.
