At least that’s what the trailer is heralding the film as. Instead of cowboys played by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenahaal, the two having a secret torrid affair are two cops in the form of Hanno Koffler and Max Riemelt. Hot and hot. On a side note, why are the occupations in these films never garbage men, accountants, butchers, hairdressers or something not so cliche?
Free Fall is Stephan Lacant’s first feature film. It tells the story of Marc who has a promising career and a baby on the way. When he meets a fellow policeman named Kay, he experiences a sense of ease and effortlessness he’s never felt before. Torn between his family and his new feelings for Kay, Marc sees his world careening more and more out of control. I’m sure all the hot gay sex is helping ease the inner turmoil.
Free Fall is currently on the indie film festival circuit and will be available digital and DVD in 2014 from Wolfe Video. Check out the trailer below.
