Broke and alone on New Year's Eve, Wilson just wants to spend the rest of a very bad year in bed. But, when his best friend convinces him to post a personal ad, he meets a woman bent on finding the right guy to be with at midnight.
Two twenty-something couples are entwined in a gut-wrenching and sex-crazed last month in Austin, Texas. Having made plans to leave town, they all seize fleeting opportunities and reexamine their relationships.
In this personal, inter-continental love story two ex-lovers, Lina (Linnea Saasen), a Norwegian dancer and Anderson (Alex Holdridge), an American filmmaker, meet by chance during a visit to Berlin. Their romance is rekindled in spite of the fact that they are both moving to opposite ends of the earth in the next forty-eight hours. Meanwhile Anderson's friends, Stephen (Rupert Friend) and Friederike (Jennifer Ulrich), toy with exploring the sexual boundaries of their long-term relationship. Berlin nestles these couples in her outstretched streets, while they wrestle with the perennial challenge of finding love, recognizing it and keeping it alive.Written by
Great cinematography, wonderful setting. A very well written love story. I do believe that it has been underrated in its reviews. Grab a glass of wine, a snack and spend an evening watching it. You won't be disappointed. The plot is well developed and the story itself well arched. I found the female lead to be convincing without over doing the drama. The musical score could have been better but the story alone makes up for the superficial aspects. This movie was a labor of love unlike some of the large commercial productions. It's a rare treat when a work like this makes it to the big screen. It's a movie with its own bragging rights.it is a wonderful date movie. A unique piece of cinema. I found it intriguing enough to watch twice. Humble and lovely.
