A film spreading some metropolitan flair upon Berlin. Unfortunately the episodes told have not approximately the same level. The "berber" story doesn't touch, it's too sentimental and incredible. Problems of poor people have to be shown otherwise! But the story about the little african boy is wonderful, especially because of the tension between his silence and the gestures and countenance of the magnificent actor Michael Gwisdek. 5/10
