Nothing Bad Can Happen scene

Julius Feldmeier--before the nastiness begins--in Nothing Bad Can Happen.

A young man is brought face to face with inhumanity and pushed to his limits in the thriller Nothing Bad Can Happen, the debut feature from German writer-director Katrin Gebbe.

Inspired by true events, the film follows Tore (Julius Feldmeier), a young lost soul involved with an underground Christian punk movement. After a chance encounter helping a stranded driver named Benno (Sascha Alexander Gersak), Tore is invited back to Benno’s home and becomes friendly with him, his wife and two children. Before long, Tore moves into a tent in the garden and gradually becomes part of the family. However, Benno can’t resist playing a cruel game designed to challenge Tore’s beliefs. As his trials become more and more extreme, Tore finds his capacity for love and resilience pushed to its limits…and beyond.

Critics acknowledged that the film was pretty brutal but well-made nonetheless, giving the film a 6.2/10 rating based on 23 published reviews.
