Michael and Bruno are two very different types of half-brothers. While Michael, the introverted molecular biologist, is more interested in genes rather than women, Bruno is more preoccupied with contacts in feminine sex or in brothels. Yet both in the end are favoured with the love of their life.
Based on the provocative writer Michel Houellebecq’s cult novel, Elementary Particles follows two brothers in their disturbing search for sex and love. The scathing critique and entertaining humor of the original work is transposed in this energetic, more optimistic adaptation starring Nina Hoss.
