Movie Info

A major work of the celebrated Berlin School, the debut of Ulrich Köhler (In My Room) is a mesmerizing portrait of a young German soldier named Paul who goes AWOL and returns to his childhood home in the countryside. Over a few summer days, Paul evades the responsibilities of everyday life and falls in love with his brother's girlfriend, disrupting the lives of everyone in his circle. With Köhler's penchant for deadpan humor and subtle performances, Bungalow becomes a quiet mockery of militarism, familial estrangement, and youthful ennui.

Critic Reviews for Bungalow

All Critics (3)

Unfortunately, almost everything about Bungalow is half-formed. But it's satisfying to have the opportunity to see a major director's starting point.

July 9, 2020 | Full Review…

It's certainly difficult to make an engaging film about aimless, shallow people, and German director Ulrich Köhler hasn't.

July 7, 2020 | Full Review…

A laconically amusing deadpan comedy with an undercurrent of anger and despair that lends it an edge.
