Reviewed at Berlin Film Festival (Panorama), Feb. 18, 2000. Original title: Zuruck auf los! Running time: 101 MIN.

With: Pierre Sanoussi-Bliss, Matthias Freihof, Dieter Bach, Bart Klein, Paul Gilling, Ared Hubert.

A group of gay friends in Berlin living under the shadow of AIDS tries to find love and happiness in this nicely made first effort from charismatic writer-director-singer Pierre Sanoussi-Bliss, who also plays the lead role. A slot in gay fests is assured, with some niche TV programming also indicated.

Sanoussi-Bliss’ character, Sam, was raised in East Germany and still lives in East Berlin with his friends. He wants a career as a singer; he’s good but can’t get a break, so every spare mark he has goes toward cutting a CD. He breaks with one lover, discovers he’s HIV-positive, moves in with a friend and seeks a new companion. The film covers familiar territory, but it’s handled with an assured light touch and an attractive sense of humor. Sanoussi-Bliss is a talent to watch.
