Great Freedom (Austria, Germany)
What if the end of a world war does not bring freedom? What if personal freedom is something that has eluded you all your life? And what if – when you finally attain it – you don’t know what to do with this gift?All these questions are raised by Great Freedom (Grosse Freiheit, the original title). The film starts with homosexual men being secretly taped in compromising situations on the toilet and the backrooms of clubs.
