A forbidden love between two police cadets, Marc and Kay, is at the centre of this brave and uncompromising film. Against the backdrop of intense physical training, the men grow close and instantly Marc is drawn to the handsome and charismatic Kay. Marc begins to realise desires he never knew he had as feelings begin to intensify between them. Being a married man and a father to be, Marc is torn between his family and his love for Kay. Leading a double life, he finds himself in free fall and realises that try as he may, he will never be able to make everyone happy. Branded the German 'Brokeback Mountain', 'Free Fall' is an honest and beautiful tale of courage, love and acceptance.
I don't normally write about films I've seen. But I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Not much bed hopping (which sometimes spoils a film), but a good love story nonetheless. German in origin, with English subtitles, it opens up what really happens in the real world for gay and not so sure gay men. With some moments of pure tenderness and good acting from all on the cast. I recommend you hire this.
