A nameless man and woman are coming from a house party and decide to head to a spontaneous pool party. The woman asks the man to first take her somewhere private to primp before getting into her bikini and the man mysteriously chooses a desolate prop house. Once there, the two begin a torturous mind game. What begins as drunken banter, soon escalates into an intense sexual encounter.

Seemingly trapped, the man then turns the tables on her and lets the woman know that she won’t leave the room alive. The plot continues to twist, constantly redefining what this strange encounter between the man and the woman is to become. As the story’s violence continues to unfold, a third character appears to let us know that nothing in this story is what it seems.

OPEN ({}) WOUND

the über –  movie

by JUERGEN R. WEBER

” … a naked pussy? Come on. It’s scary. It’s like an open wound. Why do you think most science-fiction movie-aliens have these vaginal mouth-structures? Because they are scary! Like the brain-bug in “Starship troopers”. It sucked the brain of that red-shirt guy right out. Plus his eyeballs.”

A nice, normal conversation about Richard Wagner, anal sex and Audie Murphy, gets out of control. A man and woman are trapped in a room. Or are they? They are attracted to each other and have sex. Or do they? Did the man rape the woman? Is she making this up?

fb-klein-3So many hidden agendas… so many twists – even the protagonists seem to be confused. A story that lingers between Twilight Zone, Yasmina Reza and Bukowski. Inspired by the enormous attention the Kachelmann case received in Germany and the “Strauss Kahn” incident. Juergen R. Weber’s script is about the eternal and unmerciful fight between the male and the female race. A struggle, which leads to blood, sweat and tears. Is it a psycho thriller? Or a love story? A guts and gore piece? An Ingmar Bergmannish Tale of the impossibility of happiness? Hopefully it’s something new.
