Oliver Schwabe at IFFR
About an unusual friendship between a flashy and burly guy and a protected kid.
Jakob is a difficult and cheeky adolescent. He might be engaging, but seems to avoid being so deliberately. To the annoyance of his surroundings, he records everything on video.
In their second feature, the German directors Christian Becker and Oliver Schwabe follow a young couple who are parasitic on the lives of others. The girl visits a lonely old lady in exchange for money. The boy, also for money, visits a couple whose son has died.
