The Boyfriend Game

Das Freundspiel

## ## ## ##
Two best girlfriends role-play their ideal dream boys while hanging around together in the bush. When one of them develops a fancy for the other’s Mr. Right and then takes things way too far, an unsuspected conflict suddenly escalates. The overlap of fantasy and reality represents a challenge to their friendship. The director depicts the ambiguity of childhood imagination and adolescent daydreaming.
