Berlin, 1970. Leopold (Bernard Giraudeau) is a 50-year-old businessman who has begun a very insular love affair with Franz (Malik Zidi) a 20-year-old toy boy who enjoys the attention and his dominance over his ever-pleasing lover. But as time evolves, obsession grows and finally their secluded tryst is destroyed when Franz's ex-girlfriend and Leopold's ex-lover reappear, bringing with them a collision of emotions and a sinful proposition.
Francois Ozon's WATER DROPS ON BURNING ROCKS is a scathing examination of a suffocating relationship, and the consequences of love, obsession, and aggression. It is also a Queer classic. Based on a play by the late Rainer Werner Fassbinder (QUERELLE), one of cinema's great gay directors, who died in 1982 at age of 36, having completed an astonishing 40 films. Ozon draws heavily from Fassbinder, setting this farce in a chic, art deco apartment and relying on tight camera work, impeccable acting and his skills as a film maker to set sparks flying.
