Bumpy Night

A Film by Julie Kreuzer

Synopsis

When Jonas, an actor, encounters his ex-boyfriend Anton at a party, he struggles to keep his composure. But for Jonas, a young man who can’t differentiate between the stage and real life, the performance he puts on soon spirals out of his control. Jonas has to improvise in front of his friends, who call for a speech, and in front of Anton, whose detachment appears irrevocable. As the situation escalates and his ex leaves the party, Jonas loses all restraint, “Fasten your seat-belts, it’s going to be a bumpy night!” he prophesies as once did Bette Davis, and plunges into the abyss of the night.
