You & I

Directed by Nils Bökamp

Germany / 2014 / 85 mins / German with English subtitles


After abruptly breaking up with his girlfriend Jonas plans a summertime trip through the countryside outside of Berlin, prepping for a photography project. He invites his gay best friend, Philip, to join him. The two haven’t met since they shared a flat together as roommates in London. The high spirited Philip agrees to come along and the free spirited duo take off into the scenic countryside, pulling pranks on one another and indulging their boyish whims which include skinny dipping and late night flirtations. But when they pick up a handsome, curly-haired hitchhiker named Boris and an attraction between he and Philip kicks in, Jonas becomes unexpectedly jealous and is forced to confront his true feelings. An exuberant and über sexy bromance.
