A young German soldier named Paul goes AWOL and returns to his childhood home in the countryside. Over a few summer days, Paul evades the responsibilities of everyday life and falls in love with his brother’s girlfriend, disrupting the lives of everyone in his circle.
A young man goes AWOL in Bungalow, a film uniquely attuned to a slow-burning despair barely contained by its outwardly ordinary appearance. The hugely impressive first feature from Köhler—indicative of the low-key yet deeply existential filmmaking would become characteristic of the Berlin School.
