Movie Info

Germany, the '70s. Leopold, a smug, still-hunky 50-year-old businessman, picks up and seduces fresh-faced, carrot-topped 19-year old Franz who swiftly moves into his bachelor pad. Their cozy relationship soon sours as Leopold, a kind of gone-to-seed Dirk Bogarde, turns cranky and argumentative. When Franz's buxom blond girlfriend surfaces, and then Leopold's elegant and enigmatic ex, things get funnier, steamier and a lot more complicated.

Audience Reviews for Gouttes d'eau sur pierres brûlantes (Water Drops on Burning Rocks)

  • Feb 09, 2013
    As a curious exaggeration of stereotypes, this film may be interesting at a first look, but the many attempts at a dark humor are not funny and only feel awkward and out of place - which can also be said about the surreal tone that makes it all seem sterile and pointless.

    This is probably the picture Anne Wheeler wanted to make, but then again she could call this "Better than Chocolate: The Sequel" I dunno... "WDOBR" is a good littel independent picture that focuses on four interesting characters who happen to have a problem dealing with love and betrayle.
