The situation is also a little uncomfortable for the masseur, as he can tell that it is almost too much for her. But eventually the girl relaxes and they experience a moment of intimacy. After the massage Noortje feels a little bit more like a woman on the inside, but outwardly nothing has changed.

Transient (Transient, 2014)
Germany: Frankfurt

Director: Emirhan Eringen

Synopsis:

Transient captures the first three days of a young professional moving from London to Frankfurt for an interim assignment. He represents well-educated, well-paid young professionals constantly on the move, who never settle down, but only have a “hub” city for their journey and are fueled by a “perform and achieve” culture. Settling into a new apartment, meeting a new boss, seeing an old girlfriend, and meanwhile getting more and more detached from the previous “hub” (where his relationship remained) trigger an emotional glaciation, as he becomes the embodiment of the cold corporate architecture of the city.
