FAMILY COMMITMENTS

FAMILY COMMITMENTS

Dir. Hanno Olderdissen. Germany 2015, 85 min. German with English subtitles.
Happy gay couple gallery owner David (Max von Pufendorf ) and high school coach Khaled (Omar El – Saeidi) would love to marry publicly – if there weren’t Khaled’s Arab family – especially his homophobic father Aledrissi (Ramin Yazdani) and David’s pseudo orthodox jewish acting mother Lea (Maren Kroymann).

Suddenly the pregnant Sarah (Franziska Brandmeier) arrives on their doorstep claiming that her child was David’s, (the result of a night partying in Berlin) everything seems to get out of control. Misunderstandings, outing fears, a possible paternity and a gallery insolvency are driving these contradictory families into an emotional chaos and beyond their borders.

READ ALOUD
