>> Read more about the festival

Seventy years after his grandfather escapes from Nazi Germany to Palestine, Israeli documentary director Tomer Heymann returns to the country of his ancestors to present his film "Paper Dolls" at the Berlin International Film Festival, and there meets a man who will change his life.

This 48-hour love affair, originating in Berghain Panorama Bar, develops into a significant relationship between Tomer and Andreas Merk, a German dancer. When Andreas decides to move to Tel-Aviv, he not only has to cope with a new partner, but to manage the complex realities of life in Israel and his personal connection to it as a German citizen.

Tomer's mother, descendent of German immigrants was born and lived all her life in a small Israeli village, where she raised five sons. One by one, she watches her children leave the country she and her family helped to build, and now cannot help but try to influence the life of Tomer, the one son who remains.

I SHOT MY LOVE tells a personal but universal love story and follows the triangular relationship between Tomer, his German boyfriend, and his intensely Israeli mother.

"Que sera sera..." Quite simply!

by Gabriel MAFFRE

Tomer Heymann, guest of the festival "Des Images aux mots" was presenting his most personal documentary film on Thursday 10th February in Toulouse - France.

He greets you as if he always knew you. Modest and friendly verve. First contact is fraternal. Tomer Heymann is one of those people who put you at ease from the first meeting. Seductive and simple. Exchange-thirsty, the israeli director does not hesitate to ditch a screening in Germany in order to discover his french audience. Also to honor the national pre-release of his documentary film "I Shot My Love".

I shot my love - A film by Tomer Heymann

By Nadja Grintzewitsch

This sensitive documentation of a German-Israeli love of men affected by authenticity and detail, and not least a tribute to director Tomer Heymann on his ... Extraordinary mother.

 

The story itself is quite simple: homosexual director who is up for the premiere of his new film in the German capital, dancers meet in a popular Berlin nightclub.They fall in love, the dancer follows the filmmaker to Israel, where he met his mother. After some initial difficulties, the couple finally pulls together to Tel Aviv.

This woman that work would shine but not nearly do justice. It is not the story that captivates, but rather their unique implementation. The pictures are from the beginning to the end real, not fictitious story, the performers beautifully unaffected, since they themselves embodied. Influenced by his father, the family life with our own 8mm camera has recorded its seven-member, director Tomer Heymann holds obsessively all set in its environment. It seems not a moment goes by where he does not see the world through the viewfinder. These films made the documentary "I shot my love", on 13 February 2010 at the Berlin Film Festival celebrated its world premiere.
