Boje

Germany | 10 min | Comedy, Drama, Other | 2019 | Short Film (Live Action) | Germany

How would I know if I love someone? Boje and his father live in a remote cottage by the sea, with no one but each other. A boy longing for answers, a father struggling for words. When suddenly the silence between them is penetrated by the waves of a choppy sea, answers magically find their way to Boje. Thus father and son find a way to talk.

বাংলা

বোজে আর তার বাবা সমুদ্রের তীরে একটা কটেজে থাকে। কাছে-পিঠে আর কেউ থাকে না। বোজের প্রশ্ন সে কীভাবে জানবে যে সে কাউকে ভালোবাসে। ছেলেটা উত্তরের জন্য অধীর হয়ে থাকে আর তার বাবা বরাবরই এর উত্তর দিতে হিমশিম খায়। যখন সমুদ্রের ছোট ছোট এলোমেলো ঢেউ তাদের মধ্যে নৈঃশব্দতা বিদ্ধ করে তখন বোজে জাদুর মত উত্তর খুঁজে পায়। বাবা ও ছেলের সাথে কথা বলার উপায় বের হয়।

Original Language

Woher weiß ich, dass ich jemanden liebe? Boje und sein Vater wohnen in einem abgelegenen Häuschen am Meer. Mit niemandem außer einander. Ein Junge, der sich nach Antworten sehnt. Ein Vater, der nach Worten ringt. Als plötzlich die Stille zwischen ihnen durchdrungen wird die Wellen einer unruhigen See. Antworten finden magisch ihre Weg nach Boje - als Vater und Sohn einen Weg zum Reden finden.
