Ein Fliehendes Pferd Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Already a popular serial in a magazine, a widely-read book, and a drama adapted for both the stage and radio, this story about two school friends running away from their dreams is now brought to the screen by Peter Beauvais. As two men reach adulthood, Helmut (Vadim Glowna) eventually works his way up to becoming a school principal and just wants to spend his available leisure time immersed in reading, even at the expanse of his sexual life. Klaus (Dietmar Mues) goes into journalism and his sexual life is anything but ignored; he is on his second marriage and wears his prowess like a badge of honor. Whenever the two men meet, they go around and around in an endless duel of one-upmanship, lying through their teeth about their accomplishments. This friction gets stronger and stronger until a spark ignites action in the worst possible way. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
