Räuberhände

Samuel and Janik are best friends and are planning a long trip to Istanbul after high school graduation. Then something stupid happens involving alcohol, but the two of them still go without patching up their deep divide.

More

Samuel and Janik are best friends, inseparable, like brothers. Their domain is Janik‘s parents gazebo. Friends, family – middle-class and well-situated in Janik‘s case, and struggling a lot in Samuel‘s case – and future career plans aren‘t discussed much. First they have to finish their final exams after which they‘ll implement their long-cherished plan: a trip to Istanbul where Samuel hopes to meet his father, whom he‘s never met. Right before the trip something stupid happens involving alcohol that is irreparable. The two of them still go without patching up their deep divide. Adapted from the young adult novel by Finn-Ole Heinrich, RÄUBERHÄNDE is about this trip in which nothing spectacular happens, but where things do change. The hurt is real and the atmosphere oscillates between them having bad energy, pretending nothing is happening, and occasional bursting out. Samuel distances himself and makes his way on his way, and only occasionally telling Janik about it, and quickly makes new friends. Janik, who doesn‘t speak Turkish, gets more and more discontented. Director İlker Çatak (ES GILT DAS GESPROCHENE WORT) directs in a quick and fluid way, capturing the many different moods well. Dinner with Janik‘s well-meaning parents, the graduation party, Samuel‘s attempts to distance his mother from his world, the silent breakfast on a cheap hostel terrace, the Istanbul in which Janik is a tourist and the one where Samuel feels a bit at home. The bromance filled with talking shit and unconditional loyalty makes it difficult to communicate directly, and so Samuel and Janik have to rekindle their relationship by making idiotic moves, half-fighting, and being silent together.
