Movie Info

Love blossoms in the even the most cold and unforgiving of places in this frank and startling prison drama from German filmmaker Joerg Amndreas. When young Dennis is arrested for credit card fraud, he is soon convicted of the crime and sent to serve his sentence at a maximum-security penitentiary. As each bleak day gives way to the next and hope quickly fades, Dennis' only reprieve from the pain of incarceration is the loving glance of a handsome, muscular inmate named Mike. As Dennis and Mike struggle to find time for their sexually charged rendezvous, the all-seeing eyes of the voyeuristic prison guards bear witness to their erotic escapades, and the warden shows sympathy for romantically involved prisoners who seek solace in sharing a cell.

Audience Reviews for Locked Up

I'm love movies like this.. It was very good quality except for the subtitles. I hate having to read a movie. Movies ate for watching not reading. But, I guess if you want to watch a GAY movie you have to read it. Its probably because the United States can't make GAY movies because they are so scared for a bad reputation!

I'm sure it surprises no one that I loved this movie. If the characters were women, the amount of flesh in the movie would be utterly ordinary, but it's well-known that Europeans are much more equal oppurtunity (but not equal, to be sure) when it comes to nudity. The film goes from brutal to sweet in a rather short time span. I compare it to 'Green Fingers,' which stars a bunch of British people, in which there is no nudity whatsoever, because it shows prisoners as human beings and the prison to be quite inhumane. Also, is it possible that Mike is really American? Because he sounds British, perhaps he's from the Virgin Isles or something. While the film is essentially a tender porno, there was something very geniuine about the characters that made the plot much more believable. Very recommended to folks who like this kind of stuff - European porn-fiction, perhaps one could call it. That would include everything Catherine Breillat has ever made, Tino Brass' films (like Salon Kitty, that is so messed up in so many ways), people who didn't hate 'The Dreamers.' But the essence of this porn-fiction is that it takes a fictional relationship, one that you might come to care about as in any narrative film and takes it from there. It's almost like women's porn, in that it gives you a reason to care, not just the images and I can say personally that the way I conceive of attractiveness, personality is king. I don't think Justin Timberlake is goodlooking, I can intellectually recognize why others do, but he is so uninteresting it's crazy. Another interesting aspect of these films is that most of what they show is real. It blurs boundaries the way real person slash fan fiction does.

Not only are the actors hot, the story-line is hot, and the scenes are hot! This was def a soft-core movie that had me fully erect for the majority of it. I loved it and now am in love with Marcel! The sex scenes are amazing, especially the rape scene. Fantastic, i def would love to see more of it!
