Wow. This is an amazing story, told amazingly well. Passionate and
compelling from the first scene to the last, "Love In Thoughts" takes us
into the volatile, romantic, reckless lives of a group of rebellious
students in 1927 Germany.
Based on the story of the infamous Steglitz student tragedy, a group of
romantic-thinking, outside-of-the-box-living 20-somethings make a pact
about how tragically far they'd go for love. Aside from their shared
passion for parties and love, the main characters have little in common.
The brilliant, shy, poetic Paul is a loner from the working class, while
his best friend, Guenther, is a wealthy gay boy from the countryside. Then
Guenther invites Paul home to the rich countryside for the weekend -- a
weekend of limitless love, sex, bohemian-style partying, jealousy,
rationale, and a completely unexpected outcome.
"Love in Thoughts" tells a passionately disturbing and ultimately
irresistable story. It's heartbreaking yet invigorating, shocking yet
somehow simple. It's a powerful story, and a great movie.
