Trailerama: Blutsfreundschaft (Initiation)

There are many who would argue that Helmut Berger shouldn’t be let in front of a movie camera. But the star of The Damned (and Lucino Visconti’s boyfriend) carries a lot of history. It’s used to effect in this Austrian drama, where his octogenarian dry cleaner falls for a 16-year-old estate thug. The kid’s neo-Nazi activity reminds Berger of his own fascist past and the one that got away. Directed by former Vienna Boy’s Choir member Peter Kern, who received a German film award for his role in Syberberg’s 1977 Hitler – A Film From Germany.
