The consequenceDownloadable Video - 1977 | German
Martin (Jurgen Prochnow) has been sent to jail for having had sex with a minor. While there he meets 15 year old Thomas (Ernst Hannawald), the son of one of the prison staff. Thomas immediately develops a deep crush on Martin. The two men find and share their mutual passion behind the locked door of Martin's cell. Once released, the two move in together and attempt to start a new life. But society will not let them. Harassed at every turn; Martin is fired from jobs, Thomas is sent to reform school; the two never again find the peace and happiness they found behind bars. Startling for it open and honest depiction of gay romance, this classic from 1977 is one of the earliest gay films to come out of Europe. In an interesting twist the film's director is Wolfgang Petersen, the world renown film maker who would go on to make Hollywood staples such as Das Boat, In the Line of Fire and Air Force One.
