Description
The eternal triangle: a rich guy; his bored, beautiful, blond wife; and a rugged stranger, down on his luck and ready for action. What more do you need? In this case, to know that the rich guy is a Turk who is still, despite having spent virtually his entire life in Germany, a permanent outsider. That the hot blond wife has a colorful past and owes large debts (which hubby now holds over her head). That the rugged stranger is a former soldier who received a dishonorable discharge after serving in Afghanistan, living in his dead mother's house. Jerichow is a nondescript spot in the former East Germany, where capitalism still has a somewhat primitive, half-criminal feel. The film conveys a sense of desperation and defeat, and highlights that what can happen at the crossroads of lust, loneliness, and materialism.
