Zobel and Karl are a long time gay couple who live together in a trailer home with Lizzie, Zobel's spunky daughter from a heterosexual misadventure. Together these three form a team of thieves who eke out an existence as pickpockets. After a botched job, Karl becomes unable to work, forcing Zobel and Lizzie to seek out a new partner. Lizzie recruits Rudolf, the boyishly charming town misfit. Reluctantly, Zobel allows Rudolf to join them but warns him to never break the golden rule: "No exchanging of bodily fluids within the team." This dictum becomes increasingly difficult to live by as Lizzie's cravings and Zobel's own passions toward Rudolf intensify. Eventually, the golden rule is broken by Lizzie...and then again by Zobel (unbeknownst to Lizzie, of course). An intricate love triangle soon develops amongst the three that is shaped by deception, desire, and betrayal. Written by

Das Trio is a excellent piece of film about a family of three pick-pockets and their struggle to keep everything together, themselves as well as the family unit, situated in present Germany. The story is filled with strong-felt emotions which is beautifully reflected through the characters, and the complexity of the plot thickens increasingly towards the end. At one point I really felt that it was going absurd, but the brilliant acting sort of put it all back and kept the movie real. Because thats what it is; a real movie and I love it.
