  • ZU DIR? - R: Sylvia Borges - 2011

Brief synopsis

What can things tell us about a character? Does a private place tell enough to decide if you want to go further in a relationship? Would two people better know each other after a one-night-stand or rather after they went separated to the places of each other? My movie is turning around these questions and takes the audience on a journey to the unknown "territory" of a stranger.

Sunday morning. Freya is dancing in a club. Her eyes are closed. Accidentally she falls into the arms of a young man, Max. They start to dance together. Whole night they're turning around each other like a gravity is holding them close together. They don't speak a word. The only language they need is dance.

When the clubs switches on the light and turns off the music they feel like thrown back in a cold reality. Out of the club he asks her "To my place or to yours?" Freya is disappointed by this dumpy question but she wants to give a chance to it. She makes him a strange offer: "Whats about, you go to my place and I go to yours?". He smiles. They're swapping their keys and addresses and start a journey through a sleeping city. At the places of Freya and Max they come each other closer without being physically close.
