GER21 The Bra

15+ 90 MIN
Watch Trailer


An unconventional Cinderella story where the crystal slipper steps aside for a blue bra, The Bra is a refreshing comedy set in scenic Azerbaijan, from acclaimed German director Veit Helmer.

A freight train is rolling across the vast grasslands along the Caucasian mountains. Train driver Nurlan (Predrag 'Miki' Manojlovic) is heading to Baku for the last time before retirement. On its way through the densely populated neighbourhoods of the city, his train accidentally snags a blue bra off a washing line. Driven by his loneliness, Nurlan decides to embark on the most adventurous journey of his life: to find the owner of this perky piece of underwear.

He leaves his village, rents a room in Baku and with great dedication starts knocking on the doors along the train track. While the women he encounters have their own reasons for letting him into their private worlds, his ‘project’ does not remain unnoticed by their husbands.

Told without dialogue but full of poetry, The Bra delivers a delightful tragicomic fairytale about love.
