From prolific writer-director Tor Iben (The Visitor, The Passenger, The Year I Lost My Mind), Orpheus Song is a wildly erotic variation on Greek mythology that will quickly have you falling under its sensual spell.
Enis and Philipp (Julien Lickert and Sascha Weingarten) are two hot macho dudes from Berlin who become workout buddies at their local gym – each spotting the other. The two hunks quickly fall into an intense friendship. When Philipp wins a trip to Greece, he invites Enis along and the two have a great time. But during a hike, they become lost and tempers flare, escalating to a violent scuffle.
A mysterious young man, Hercules (Henry Morales), happens upon them and leads them to a magical underground cave. During the night, fueled by forbidden fruit Hercules has warned them against eating, passion ignites between Enis and Philipp. The next day, nothing between the two will ever be the same.
Watch the trailer for Orpheus Song below. The film is now available on Dekkoo.
Tom (Alexander Tsypilev) is a lonely young man. While carrying out a burglary he falls in love with Lars (Julien Lickert), a young history teacher. Tom starts to stalk Lars and pursue him without revealing himself… or feelings for him.
Meanwhile, Tom is developing a second obsession with a biker – whom, strangely, he seems to keep running into. More and more Tom gets lost inside a dangerous, real-life game of hide-and-seek and a labyrinth of passions. Once Lars becomes aware of Tom’s creeping presence, things take an even wilder turn.
A new thriller from Tor Iben, the German director behind The Passenger and The Visitor (both of which are also now on Dekkoo), The Year I Lost My Mind is sexy and unsettling in equal measure.
“This movie is an attempt to look into the abyss of gay history and trace the marks that this history has left,” said Iben, continuing “this project is for everybody who loves dark stories, dark movies with an artistic touch or anyone who thinks this kind of movie, this kind of attempt, has to be supported!”
