Quirky, beautiful and superbly photographed, ‘Bedways’ is truly exciting and bold German filmmaking and is to be released on DVD in the UK on Monday 21st March 2011 by Crabtree Films.
Taking a liberal and at times experimental approach to cinema, director R.P. Karl has crafted a tense and physical drama that examines relationships, sex and the bohemian lifestyle.
Set in Berlin, film director Nina Bader wants to shoot a movie about love and sex and invites her actor-friends Hans and Marie for screen tests for a couple of days. For Nina love is not necessarily a matter of emotion – she is rather looking for an authentic depiction of sex. The intimate collaboration turns into experiments with film, love and bodies and finally has an impact on the private relationships between the three of them. It seems that the boundaries between acting and reality begin to disappear.
At times shocking and explicit, ‘Bedways’ always retains its sense of honesty while the palpable chemistry between the two leads helps to create what is an unforgettable viewing experience.
