Paul Krotz would later publish his 1st novel in 1931, Die Mietskaserne, under the pen name of Ernst Erich Noth telling what really happened that weekend. In 1933, the book was publicly burned by the Nazi's and 2 months after Krontz went into exile. Reporting anything about his trial, is still considered a scandal today.
Although at moments, the movie is rather slow and sometimes confusing as to who is with whom, and how they all relate to each other, it sexually and emotionally draws you into it's web of passion.
In 1927, Gunther (August Diehl), his sister Hilde (Anna Maria Muehe) and one of his best friends Paul (Daniel Bruhl) went on a long weekend retreat to the summer house of Gunther and Hilde's parents. Paul had a crush on Hilde and hoped to be alone with her for the weekend. Instead Hilde is secretly seeing Hans, who her brother, Gunther, is still in love with. And then there's Hilde's girlfriend who is secretly in love with Paul and shows him. Talk about a love triangle when a group of friends show up to the retreat for a four day orgy, drug and drinking fest, that leaves everyones feelings betrayed.
