Product Description

On a Berlin summer day, a chance encounter brings together two young men whose lives are in shambles. Alex is coping with a broken heart after his deadbeat boyfriend cheats on him; Leo is a media professional who can no longer hide the truth from his demanding, long-term girlfriend: he's been attracted to men all the while. So begins a summer of love and self-discovery for Alex and Leo. But before they can find bliss with each other, Alex must detach himself from his ex and Leo must unleash his "inner lion" to convince Alex's oddball clique of friends that he's a worthy suitor. Starring Andre Schneider (No Future, Half Past Ten) and Marcel Schlutt (Unfaithful, Locked Up), Alex and Leo is a heartwarming romance whose international backdrop, colorful characters and irreverent humor will delight audiences around the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun, romantic comedy... Oct. 11 2011
By William Nugent - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I think it's interesting how life can hand you a message...I came across Alex And Leo and wasn't even looking for it. So, through a series of events, I was lead here and purchased this little gem of a film. I've always been a fan of foreign cinema, especially German. So when I find one that is gay themed, it's just another plus. I didn't read the other reviews, before I purchased this, so that I wouldn't be influenced by what I read and then saw on the screen. I'm glad I didn't.

"Alex And Leo" IS an independent film, but it has a lot of soul....the ensemble cast works together very well to bring you a light-hearted view on what could be a very dark journey. I guess if you've lived through situations, like the one in this movie, it might leave you opened to understanding the characters a little more. I have, so I found myself sympathizing with Andre Schneider's character, Alex. Without giving a lot away, he's been burned...regardless of his past or what he's experienced in a relationship, he's hurting. So, how he reacts is congruent with what has transpired. I have also been in "Leo's" (Marcell Schlutt's) situation...coming to terms with your sexuality and taking the steps to find acceptance. Again, this is my own unique view of what happens in this film, but if it didn't have the heart to back up the subject matter, I wouldn't be here writing this. I found the little things interesting, between the dialouge...the way Schneider used his eyes to convey an emotion, or the body language used by any of the cast members to make a sitaution feel real and not staged like a lot of films do.

So, to wrap things up...give this film a chance! It has all the situations that, I'm sure, many of us have gone through with our friends and lovers. That is why it resonated with me and it is a film I will share with my friends.

2.0 out of 5 stars Leo 5, Alex 0 Oct. 9 2011
By Scadhog - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Amiable, featherweight German comedy about an unlikely romance between Leo, a supposedly straight man coming to grips with the fact that he is gay, and Alex, a gay man on the rebound from a failed relationship. Former porn star Marcel Schlutt makes an endearing Leo, shy and sensitive and socially awkward as he tries to fit into Alex's circle of eccentric friends. Andre Schneider as Alex, however, lacks any sort of charisma, behaving more like a whiny little kid than a frustrated lover.

It is easy to see why anyone would be attracted to Leo, but why anyone, including Leo, would be drawn to Alex ranks up there as one of life's greatest mysteries. Alex's circle of friends, far from being eccentric, come off as annoying, especially Tobias (Udo Lutz), a stereotypical bitchy queen.

The movie itself ranges from mildly amusing to downright embarrassing. The bikini party is excruciating. The only supposedly erotic scene is neither explicit nor particularly erotic, but it is jarringly out of place in what is otherwise an innocuous film.

This is one of those movies that you want very much to like, but never quite manage to do so. There are many worse ways to spend an hour and a half, but unfortunately for Alex and Leo, there are many better ways.

1.0 out of 5 stars zero chemistry between Alex and Leo Nov. 20 2012
By Matthias - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The movie is ok, but very amateurish. But that's not the real problem. The real problem is that there is zero chemistry between the two leads. The pairing is unbelievable and they appear to act in two different films. Schlutt is not a very good actor, but Schneider is unbelievable bad. I wouldn't recommend this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Average Joe Finding True Love ... Sept. 4 2012
By Lawrence Oei - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It was pleasantly refreshing to watch a movie about love between two men played by actors who look like real, ordinary or even average men holding regular jobs and dreaming of love as you or I would. There certainly wasn't any buff pretty boy-types with the de rigueur 6-pack abs and Chad Allen smoulder or Chris Salvatore pout. Most of the gay-themed movies I've purchased, watched and reviewed here on amazon.com are certainly good quality indies but almost all the male leads look as if they've just pristinely come off a GQ photo-shoot with every feather in place. What truly surprised me about Alex & Leo was it's very simple, uncluttered love theme brought very astutely to life by two male leads who look, well, just as the average Joe or Fred would look. It certainly puts a refreshing spin to love between two men - after all, we don't all need to look like the John Barrowman's, Matthew Montgomery's or Ricky Martin's of Gay Tinsel City to find true love, do we?

I thoroughly enjoyed it and would most certainly recommend it (just be sure to turn on the English subtitles or the German dialogue will sound just like Greek).

4.0 out of 5 stars It feels a bit low budget, but it wears its heart on its sleeve April 18 2011
By DVD Verdict - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Judge Brett Cullum, DVD Verdict -- "Fans of gay cinema should find much to like in this amiable romantic comedy. It has all the usual trappings you would find in the genre, but being gay and German gives it all a unique twist. Schneider was once a standup comic and Schlutt used to be a porn star, and so they both bring a unique ease to getting together that is both funny and sexy."
