"A collision of yearning sexuality and raw attraction." - QX

Director: Sabine Bernardi

Writer: Sabine Bernardi

Stars: Rick Okon, Maximilian Befort, Liv Lisa Fries, Felix Brocke


Romeos is a tale of star-crossed lovers with a difference, Sabine Bernardi’s richly textured ode to teenage love takes a fresh and unique look at a romantic encounter that transcends boundaries.

When 20-year-old Lukas arrives in Cologne, a summer of late nights, clubs heaving with hot guys and insurmountable self-discovery awaits. You see, Lukas has a heavy secret that he has chosen to leave behind, and best friend Ine knows this too well. Like most young adults their age, the pair indulge in parties and alcohol with abandon, helping Lukas to overcome what makes him different from everyone else.

However, when Fabio appears, a heated attraction between the two boys gradually develops – until Fabio accesses the secret of Lukas’s identity. Despite their differences, will love conquer all?
