Boy Meets Girl is a funny, tender, sex positive romantic comedy that explores what it means to be a real man or woman, and how important it is to live a courageous life not letting fear stand in the way of going after your dreams.
Lynn (22) lives with her brother in Berlin. There she enjoys the advantages of family life, without really feeling involved in it. She does not have any precise aim in life, but manages to awaken the interest of many people with her direct and spontaneous character. Her boyfriend David is very different: he is entirely engrossed in his very disciplined swimming training for the world championships. David does not intend to allow himself to be distracted by the complicating factors of a relationship with Lynn. When Lynn, working behind the till of restaurant, meets the Japanese student Koji, everything gets more complicated. They can't exchange many words, but it is soon clear that their moments together mean a lot to both of them.Written by

A film that takes its time to tell an incredibly sad and beautiful love story. Lynn is torn between her unresponsive boyfriend and a Japanese student. The acting is excellent and every scene feels genuine, with all the clumsiness and subtle
details of real life. To some it may seem slow, but the atmosphere that is
gradually built up throughout the film culminates in one of the most beautiful endings I have ever seen.
