Storyline

Berlin. Forty years from today. A roiling city of immigrants, where East crashes against West in a science-fiction Casablanca. Leo Beiler (Skarsgard), a mute bartender has one reason and one reason only for living here, and she's disappeared. But when Leo's search takes him deeper into the city's underbelly, an odd pair of American surgeons (led by Rudd) seem to be the only recurring clue, and Leo can't tell if they can help, or who he should fear most.

Harsh reviews
9 December 2019 | by hannahpenney-48043See all my reviews

I think this is a film for people who enjoy actually watching films rather that picking apart themes, time periods and futuristic gadgets. Just sit back and enjoy it. It's a slow paced film but has some great side plots to keep you interested.

I think the low reviews are way too harsh.
