Hot summer. Nike has a balcony, Katrin has a son, Ronald drives a truck, Tina’s a waitress, Oskar and Helene are old and alone. At the beginning, middle or end of their lives – they all ask the same question: Can love last through the seasons? Or is it something affecting the brain that just comes and goes?
With a sharp eye and great love for his characters, director Andreas Dresen has crafted the story of two girlfriends, who, from their balcony – between heaven and earth – gaze down at their turbulent and difficult universe, where the right men are all too often exactly wrong, and to get ahead even a good-looking woman had better be strong.
Screenwriter Wolfgang Kohlhaase, employs his remarkably light and crisp style to maintain a fine balance between comedy and tragedy, aided by an outstanding cast, featuring Inka Friedrich, Nadja Uhl and Andreas Schmidt.
Andreas Dresen’s SUMMER IN BERLIN is an enchanting comedy, full of human warmth, sincerity and delightful humor – a film about life.
