Engel & Joe

Engel & Joe

Deutschland 2000/2001, Spielfilm

Inhalt

This is true love. Engel, a punk, meets Joe, a runaway, and that adventure called life begins. Engel spends each day without any particular plans, but he has his dreams, and he inspires Joe to dream as well. They fall madly in love and Joe gets pregnant. But what is their place in life? Where can they find a home? And who will accept them as they are? Engel and Joe decide to have the baby. Against all odds, their feelings promise a future for them if they overcome their fears and believe in their dreams. Driven by desire, their love becomes a bulwark against the rest of the world. But before they can make their dream of a home in the mountains come true, they have to survive the harsh reality of life on the streets.
The screenplay by Stern-reporter Kai Hermann (co-author, Christiane F. - We Children from Bahnhof Zoo) is based on true events and, in the hands of director Vanessa Jopp (Forget America), becomes a merciless yet poetic drama of youth. German shooting stars Robert Stadlober (Crazy) and Jana Pallaske (alaska.de) shine in this dense, authentic story.
