Synopsis by Mark Deming
A couple have become oblivious to their mutual indiscretions in this drama from German filmmaker Florian Schwarz. Karl (Christoph Bach) and Doris (Jule Bowe) are married, but show little love or trust for one another, and seem to have gone past caring about it. Karl will seduce women on a dare from his friends when he isn't committing acts of homophobic violence, while Doris has been having an affair with Ralf (Walter Kreye), a regular customer at the bar where she works. While Karl and Doris outwardly seem to have little interest in each other's sexual relationships, this doesn't prevent them from spying on their partners, sifting through their personal belongings when the opportunity presents itself. Katze in Sack (aka Let The Cat Out Of The Bag) received its North American premiere at San Francisco's 2006 Berlin and Beyond Film Festival.
