DEVOTION (HINGABE)

DEVOTION
© Stephan Buske/Filmuniversität Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF

Franz and Julia love each other. They have been a couple for two years since he helped her out with some coins for the self-service laundry. From that day on, helping Julia out is Franz’ duty in life. He tries to keep everything bad away from her. But that one night he loses control. On their way home, Franz and Julia get harassed by a group of aggressive young men on the street. Franz wants to de-escalate the situation by not interfering while one of the men approaches Julia’s face and whispers in her ear. Luckily nothing “bad” happened, their friends say afterwards. But that’s not the truth. For Julia something did happen: Franz didn’t protect her. And he is so ashamed about the situation that he refuses to talk about it. The only thing he cares about is: “What did this guy whisper in your ear?”
