Vergewaltigt Wird Hier Keiner

A Film by Alice Gruia

Synopsis

A chamber piece in which a young couple are about to meet two strangers for group sex. An intense observation of something extraordinary in an ordinary couple’s life.

Philip and Jelena are getting ready for a night in: having a quick shower, arranging some snacks on the table and making the odd snide remark. Both are too preoccupied trying to cover up their own insecurity to actually realise how insecure the other is. Their routined, oblique way of communicating is like a boxing match. Sometimes a swing makes real contact and it hurts, sometimes they just dodge and taunt. But in the end, both are out for the count, when the unspoken is finally said.
