Oh Boy
Available on iTunes
Niko is in his late 20s and recently dropped out of college. He lives for the moment, drifting through the streets of Berlin, observing the people around him with curiosity as they manage their daily lives, oblivious to his own growing status as an outsider. One day everything changes, and Niko is forced to confront the consequences of his inaction, when his girlfriend dumps him and his father cuts off his allowance. Meanwhile, his new neighbour tries to get to know him and a peculiar beauty from his past confronts him with the emotional wounds he inflicted. And all Niko wants is a decent cup of coffee. "Do you know the feeling when people around you seem to behave in a strange way?" Niko wonders. "And the longer you think about it, the more it dawns on you that it's not other people who are strange, but yourself?" Winner of 6 German Film Awards, including best Film, Best Director and Best Actor, OH BOY is the debut feature from Jan Ole Gerster, an exciting new voice in German Cinema.
