After breaking up with his boyfriend, young Spaniard Luis (Fernando Tielve) decides on a carefree visit to Berlin. Naïve and often reckless, Luis makes a series of bad choices that lead to love, danger, and possibly hallucinations. The pulsing club music throughout fits the trippy storyline.
At times, the viewer must guess about what actually happens to Luis, and about which of the characters to trust. Even though Luis is handsome and charming, he sometimes seems too willing to deceive his friends and even risk his life.
The story becomes slightly brutal at times and slightly confusing at others. The twisting plot helps the movie live up to its title. Despite a fairly large cast, the focus stays on the talented and engaging lead.
I kept wondering why Luis would go anywhere with the unstable Viktor (Marko Mandic), much less fall in love with him. Still, their relationship drives much of the mystery, especially after it turns out that Luis looks a lot like Viktor’s missing ex-lover. I also couldn’t quite decide what to make of the ending, but I enjoyed the movie anyway.
