THE CIRCLE

THE CIRCLE

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Docudrama about The Circle, a Swiss social group for gay men that thrived during the 1940s and 1950s, focusing on the incipient love affair between teacher Ernst (Hungerbühler) and Barber Röbi (Schelker). The story is given added stature by the insertion of interviews with the real-life Ernst and Röbi. Röbi and Ernst live through the high point and the eventual decline of the organisation, which, in the whole Europe, is seen as the symbol of gay emancipation. Ernst finds himself torn between his "bourgeois" existence and his commitment to homosexuality. For Röbi it is about his first serious love relationship. A relationship which will last a lifetime. ★★★★ "A fascinating history lesson and a tender love story" - Allan Hunter, The List
