Synopsis

„Erwin has everything he needs in his caravan: Internet, bed, refrigerator, coffee machine. However, he rarely stays in the house next door, which also belongs to him. Filmmaker Jan Soldat comes to visit him. And learns not only of Erwin’s sexual preferences, but also of his two great loved ones, the relationship with his parents, his fears. As in many of Soldat’s earlier works, the topic of sexuality in “Erwin” enables an immediate narrative addition. An intimate conversation in a confined space, undisguised and literally naked.“
(Carolin Weidner, film journalist)
