As others have mentioned, this is kind of like the German version of Brokeback Mountain. Despite my issue with some of the story line, I thought it was well acted, the entire cast was stellar and the film always kept me engaged. I appreciate the fact that the ending was not sugar coated, it ended I think as it should. However, if you are looking for a happy, uplifting movie, this isn’t it.
Just a word of warning - There are scenes of graphic sexual content and nudity.
