Lila, a girl who returns to Berlin after being abroad for a year, meets Chris. She falls in love with him, but what she doesn't know is that Chris is a famous rock star with many fans chasing him around, including her little sister.
Gwen has just discovered, that she's the final member of the secret time-traveling Circle of Twelve. Now she has to juggle with constant trips to the past, her relationships with Gideon and figuring out dark secrets surrounding the Circle.
Two guys - a tabloid photographer and a heartbroken fan - meet at the rooftop apartment of an absent celebrity dentist. Both hope for an exclusive peek as the Brangelina bandwagon is about to hit Berlin. While they wait, various women show up at the flat, among them the womanizing dentist's illustrious lovers. Some have keys, some have guts, some have nothing at all. It sounds cute, but the script is just too silly for its own good. Trying hard to be funny, veteran TV writer-director Blumenberg goes too far, yet not far enough at the same time. He mostly plays for easy laughs, but then he can't refrain from pretentious Pre-talkie inter-titles. He even makes one of his characters quote Sartre and Heidegger, although in jest. Because of all the people showing up, vaudeville style, it never really gets boring, but I couldn't get myself to care for anyone either. Most characters just seem like excuses for jokes and puns. Of the many guest appearance, Jana Pallaske's, as a kick-boxing pizza girl, is the most notable by far. She is developing a penchant for small parts it seems. Most recently, she was seen as the rebellious art student in a short sequence in Wim Wenders' "Palermo Shooting". I wonder what it's going to be in Tarantino's upcoming "Inglourious Basterds". One thing's for certain: If they ever make "Snow Crash" into a movie, she'd be a natural fit for Hiro.
