Sebastian, a young male prostitute, is one of Georgs few remaining chances to break through his hermit-like everyday life in exchange for a few fleeting moments of being together with someone at least for a few hours. Georg loves Sebastians easy-going and playful manner. He loves the absurd stories that the boy spontaneously comes up with and Georg never knows whether to actually believe all of them or not. And it looks like today Georgs long cherished dream will finally come true: this time the boy asks him if he can stay overnight of his own free will. Georg does everything to fully enjoy the rare and valuable moments he hopes for more. Yet the more Georg dares to get closer to the boy, the more Sebastian breaks off contact with him. Within a short space of time, the boy seems to age by many years. He is looking for help. Georgs hopes are shattered. They start arguing.

Addictive films deserve objectivity (Ms. Rosa Stampa)
I saw that film even before Ms. Stampa Rosa. Not just in Locarno, where i attended its world premier, no, where ever I've been able to watch it, i couldn't wait seeing it.
And every time i am anew impressed by the beautiful images, by it's impressing tenderness and the sensitive and sensitively told story! I don't perceive it as a gay movie- IT IS MORE! of course, on its surface, it deals with a gay subject, but develops into a incredibly touching portrait of life in general and a fascinating and precise portrait of an old man, as well! Non moralist and open minded! And definitely non of these "gay soft-porn"
To Ms "Stampa Rosa": And now, i am proud to be able to tell you, that i saw it around 4 times internationally and have never been bored at all. I am not sure what you expect from film, but this film has everything a young film should have. It offers a courageous insight into the reality of a living being, into a part of society, younger people like to push aside. THIS, Ms "Stampa Rosa" is a film which gives you 150% back of what it's promising. Your generalization is annoying! One advice: Watch more German Films, (whatch more films in general), and read more press articles (as i am working for Press as well, I know that what you say is definitely NOT TRUE!!! (you should read the international articles about the film as well.) You'll find out that you belong to a minority with your opinion. The awards this film has already won, should say you the same.
