Wayward Canadian, Matthew, crushed by the isolation of being new to Berlin, turns his sexual desires toward Matthias that spiral into a dark fixation of assumed identity. Soon, this obsessive power struggle between the two, careens toward brutal passion and violence in a bid for dominance.
M/M is a film of unique contrasts. Hot queer bodies entangled together, but against the drab, heavy grey sky of Berlin. Extreme explorations of identity and desire, but with an underlying familiarity. Surreal, but completely grounded in truth and naturalistic vibes. Pulsing techno that draws you in and washes over you. Director Drew Lint and his team have created something unbelievably fresh here - a film that must be experienced to be understood.
