A couple wakes up in bed together; they start making out and he wants to take things further, but she’s not in the mood. A passing joke about paying for her to change her mind turns serious and afterwards, they have a hard time coming to terms with how this has changed their relationship. In »Intercourse«, director Jonatan Etzler holds up a mirror to the skewed power structures in our society and how they can affect our most intimate relationships and our ability to talk about them.
