Out This Week: Orpheus Song
Two hot, gym-obsessed friends from Berlin – one straight, Enis (Julien Lickert), and one gay, Philipp (Sascha Weingarten) – win a trip to Greece. While on a hike through the forest, they become lost. Tempers soon flare, escalating in a violent (and weirdly erotic) scuffle.
The boys wander all through the woods until they find an abandoned village where they encounter a mysterious and seductive stranger who calls himself Hercules (Henry Morales). Soon, Hercules has lead them to a magical underground cave. During the night, fueled by forbidden fruit Hercules had warned them against eating, passion ignites between Enis and Philipp. On the next day – and every day thereafter – nothing between the two will be like it was before.
Prolific queer writer-director Tor Iben’s erotic new film is a modern day variation on Greek mythology that will quickly have viewers falling under its sensual spell.
