Futur Drei

No Hard Feelings

High-cut trousers, skin-tight t-shirt, short, peroxide-blond hair: Parvis, son of Iranian parents and growing up in Lower Saxony, is busy trying out everything and anything from sex dates to raves. After getting caught shoplifting, he is sent to do community service in a refugee shelter where he falls in love with Amon, who has fled Iran with his sister Banafshe Arezu. The trio enjoys a summer of fierce partying till dawn, coloured by the realisation that, in their different ways, none of them is at home in Germany. (Berlinale)
