SYNOPSIS
Drenched in sex and style, Straight plows right through to the tantalizing details of a Menage a trois.

Jana is a social worker who tries to help local prostitutes, she tells her judgemental and racist mother that she works foe a publishing company as a cover for the truth; she lives in the slums. Nazim prowls the neighbohood with his crew, in search of drugs and fist fights, hiding his true identity as a bi-curious hoodlum who picks up male strangers for an impersonal quickie. David is one of his first conquests, Nazim is ashamed and throws him out as soon as their session is over. David finds himself back in the arms of his girlfriend, Jana, who is constantly awash in a haze of sex and drugs, including when she preforms a strip tease at a bar and picks up a mesmerized Nazim, who knows nothing of her relationship with David. As David,Nazim, and Jana begin to discover each other's secrets, Straight tightens the screws until the tension is almost unbearable. This highly erotic drama, which is a carnal cross-up of Chasing Amy and Shank, is tinged with biting humor. It also features a moody, enveloping mix of songs, courtesy of Kitty Solaris and her Future Air Hostess album. Straight isn't just a movie, it's a mind set, where monogamy is nothing more than a pipe dream.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
***** SPOILER ALERT *****

This relatively short, low budget German film with English subtitles starts by following the bar-hopping of a group of Turkish young men, including Nazim (Eralp Uzun), the attractive young man on the cover of the DVD, who comes on to a woman in the bar (Beba Ebner) whom we later learn is a Polish and Catholic social worker with clients in this seedy Neukölln section of Berlin. She is rightly accused of rebelling against her background and of being enamored of the prostitutes who are her clients. Despite having a boyfriend "Bunny," who often stands her up, she goes home with Nazim. Nazim we learn is into every pleasure in the book, from alcohol to cocaine to sex, and his phone-sex calls indicate that he is a bit kinky as well.

On the way home from the subway exit, Nazim is stalked by David (Florian Sonnefeld), and Nazim seems intrigued by the stranger, with whom he shares a beer and then more, clearly a first for Nazim but not David. Conflicts develop when we learn that David is also "Bunny," so there is a love triangle that is discovered when David stands up his girlfriend -- leaving her with two plates of pasta and empty glasses -- and she tries to get even by visiting Nazim, only to discover that David is there. David tries to make it up to her by going to a restaurant but he is carrying a bottle of wine she left behind at Nazim's, and she responds as one might expect.

Neither Uzun nor Sonnefeld are gay, so the conflicted emotions of their sex scenes together seem authentic, and Uzun exudes sexuality for the duration of the film even when he shows some unexpected vulnerability.

The extras include a reunion shot just prior to the U.S. release as well as a making of. An orange VW beetle ("käfer") plays an interesting role in the film and provides the name of the production company.

Format: DVD
Is it me or has gay cinema went downhill,I am so tired of seeing the same movies always about a bisexual or gay guy always a drug addict or always miserable and depressed, wanting that straight man but the straight man always ends up with that woman and the gay guys ends up being depressed, how many times has that story been told.Then they have to throw in a girl to not make the movie to gay because of the homophobic rating companies.I would like to see just only a gay movie that is not based on stereo types or misery,the majority of gay people are not drug addicts.These foreign films have lost there artistic expression.skip this trash and watch querelle,maurice(at least he ends up with a gay man in the end and doesnt get depressed about not having his first fling)boys life the first one,those are great films.these newer gay(slash wanna be foreign must be restricted from telling a real good gay story where the gay man ends up with a happy life,or is not bi-sexual.
