Maybe, Maybe Not
Scene from "Maybe, Maybe Not"

The last infidelity may be just one too many: Axel is banished by his girlfriend Doro from the flat they share. His un successful search for temporary digs leads him straight to the door of the two gays Walter and Norbert. They are both as keen as mustard on him and come on strong to this hunky straight. In a moment of reconciliation, Axel finds out about Doro's pregnancy, but Norbert happens - of all things - to be standing stark naked in the bedroom wardrobe. Doro's suspicion is aroused and finds no end: Axel is having an affair with a man!
