REAL GUYS (ECHTE KERLE)

REAL GUYS

Christoph, a cop and a dyed-in-the-wool macho, wakes up after a night on the town in the bed of Edgar, a good-looking gay car mechanic, who has fallen impetuously in love with him. Christoph's world seems to be coming apart at the seams when he goes and loses both his girlfriend and flat shortly afterward, and then gets a new, very self-confident colleague called Helen, who is clearly as interested in him as he is in her. What's more he finds out that Edgar occasionally nicks cars, and he is also no longer sure whether he likes guys or girls ... A cop, an attractive detective and a gay car thief in a turbulent romantic comedy.
