Friday Morning Man: Hanno Koffler!

This 33-year-old actor is one of the stars of one of the best films I’ve seen at Outfest so far this year: Free Fall.

He’s Hanno Koffler and he plays a seemingly straight police officer with a pregnant girlfriend in this very well-done German drama.

But he finds himself unexpectedly attracted to a fellow officer he meets while away at training.

They begin a physical relationship and are soon passionately in love and it becomes a very complicated situation at work and at home.

The love scenes are very realistic and very sexy – a lesson to all actors playing gay love scenes.

Koffler is an actor and musician who has a long list of credits on stage, in television and in film.

    Besides having a face made for the big screen, he has the chops. An incredibly beautiful and TALENTED actor. I agree FREEFALL was not only the best OUTFEST movie, but the best movie I’ve seen all year. A German “Brokeback Mountain”.

  3. The best gay movie ever.

  4. One the best romantic dramas I’ve ever seen, and one of the best gay movies I’ve ever seen. Hanno did an amazing job in his role as the lead character. Very talented young man!

  5. Just watched Free Fall on Netflix. I had not heard of it, just tried it on a whim. I was so satisfied with this truly amazing film all around. The actors Hanno, Max, and Katerina were all terrific, but it is Hanno Koffler who must carry the bulk of the load in this film, and he is truly mesmerizing. (The other two are TOTALLY watchable as well.) There is not one false note in his portrayal of a seemingly ordinary guy whose emotional life becomes gradually more and more conflictual. His portrayal was both painful and beautiful to watch. I would recommend Free Fall to anyone who loves films about the complexity of intimate human relationship. Bravo!

  6. One of the best films I have seen for a long time. The three stars played it amazingly well. A beautiful film showing emotions in the bare. Makes you remember we are all human.

    I stumbled across this movie and what a find. I even bought it. Such beautiful love scenes. It felt so real. It was the best movies I have ever seen. My heart broke and I actually cried at the end the two men who are lovers are the best actors I’ve seen in ages. I recommend this love story with highest regards. Great actors.

    This movie is one of the best I have ever seen. It touched me deeply in so many parts. I found myself bawling my eyes out several times during the movie. We need so many more true to life movies like this one, and we need actors like these people, who gave performances that were so true to life. I’ve given it 5 stars. It’s just too perfect of a movie and I recommend that everyone see it.

  9. Agree all around. This is one of the best movies I’ve seen with someone struggling with their sexuality. Hanno and Max are both terrific in this film but Hanno has a breakout performance of raw emotion. You carry his burden for days after watching this film. I’m a big fan now.
