This picture is very well photographed in black-and-white, which amounts very to the story and the two strong main characters in it. What we see is not the Berlin of all the 90's (tv)documentaries, but a city where dreams can still exist and love between two human beings prevails. This may sound corny, but the film is too intelligent for that. And there is also the wonderful music of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra.
I saw this at The International Film Festival in Rotterdam (The Netherlands). A majority of the audience could not share my enthusiasm, giving the picture only a slight above average vote.
