Synopsis

Vera and Heike are two friends who aspire for a dazzling lifestyle, but don’t own any savings to do so. Vera decides to start stealing from men while sipping drinks with them in bars. When Heike takes over her job, her technique doesn’t prove as successful and she ends up being caught at once.

Our take

Christian Petzold’s last student short was a stylistic breakthrough for the young director. A film noir-inspired story of those left behind by Germany’s new neoliberal economy, The Warm Money operates in the genre-influenced mode of filmmaking that would make Petzold a star of arthouse cinema.
