No Songs of Love (Keine Lieder ueber Liebe)

Filmmaker Tobias Hansen shoots a documentary about the life of his brother Markus, a rock musician, who is touring through Northern Germany.

The relationship between the two brothers, however, suffers from an unspoken conflict: Tobias believes that his girl friend Ellen is having an affair with Markus. When Ellen shows up at the shoot, the conflict breaks out, becoming the central theme of the picture.

How well do we really know the people that are close to us?
