Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
Written and directed by the filmmaking team of Gerhard Ertl and Sabine Hiebler, this odd German comedy is about three couples and the way their lives cross paths at one gas station. The first pair of lovers meets at the gas station where the man works. Falling in love, they decide to live together at the station. Next, the second couple arrives with a peculiar proposal. It seems the woman is fatally ill and they'd always dreamed of owning a gas station together, so they've come to offer to buy it. Finally, the third couple, a bank robbing duo, enters the story with plans to stick up the station. Nominated for the top prize at Germany's 2002 Max Ophuls Festival, Nogo had its U.S. premiere at the 2002 Chicago International Film Festival.
