A melancholic, but funny, romantic, but somehow crazy movie
It's the 31st December 1999 in Berlin and the different characters have different expectations for and dreams of the coming millennium. What happens when those characters come together, is told in three different episodes held together by the radio moderator of the smallest radio station in Europe. That ends up in a good comedy on the one hand, but also in a romantic drama bringing you the magic of that special night.
If you won't be able to see the movie in 1999: It is not necessary at all to be surrounded by any kind of millenium-hype to have fun with this movie. It's just set at that time because of the symbolic change (in time and for the movie characters).
