BUNGALOW (2002) - Be the Cowboy: The Cinema of Ulrich Köhler

Deptford Cinema, Lewisham, SE8 4PQ
Mon 18th February 2019 8:00PM

Director: Ulrich Köhler



85 Mins

Rating – N/A

Following Christian Petzold and Harun Farocki’s The State I Am In (2000) and Angela Schanelec’s Passing Summer (2001), Ulrich Köhler makes his hugely impressive filmmaking debut with Bungalow (2002): a deceptive drama considerably more complicated than the low-key love triangle it may initially seem. Absent without leave, wayward young soldier Paul (Lennie Burmeister) returns home to the cumulative despair of dislocation, and the alienating, almost-immediate interruption of both his brother (Devid Striesow), and his brother’s girlfriend Lene (Trine Dyrholm — Festen, Nico, 1988). A quiet and compelling character study—a hugely impressive first feature that was, on its premiere, described by magazine Cahiers du Cinema as: “moving and minimalistic… a throwback to the New Wave of the ‘60s.”

Bungalow will be preceded by two short films by Ulrich Köhler: Feldstraße (1993) and Palü (1998).
