Black Sheep (Schwarze Schafe)

Black Sheep
Scene from "Black Sheep" (photo © koboiFilm)

Blacksheep is about urban Berlin lifestyle. About a bunch of hopeless losers who are trying to get the big money with the strangest plans. There is an ex-hand model for Rolex who wants to seduce a yuppie girl and cheat his insurance company. There is an East-German woman and her drunken artist boyfriend playing the lottery. Some satanists who are planing a ritual with their grandmother. Two young anarchists who are testing a new kind of ego-economy. And last, but not least, three horny Turkish boys who are stealing cash to meet a prostitute. A light-hearted, stylish comedy in an electric Berlin, full of surreal moments. About material illusions and true love.
