Katrin and Nike.
5 February 2020 | by zutterjp48See all my reviews

Sommer vorm Balkon is a very pleasant comedy about two young women of Berlin, their daily fight for a work, their bad luck with men and their fiendship. In spite of all the difficulties they will meet in their life they are full of humour and this make this film enjoyable. The performances of Inka Friedrich (Katrin Engel) and Nadja Uhl (Nicole "Nike" Pawelsky) are very good.
