Bruno is making his way through the city searching for its soul. Driven by his curiosity, a challenging imagination and his wild reflection on reality he is lifting the old dusty curtain on the city's crusted perception.
Bruno (Timo Mewes) roams the streets of Berlin with his head full of questions, gazing behind the many facades and surfaces. He is seeking the soul of the city, that certain something that others might never notice. He unexpectedly meets Vicky (Marleen Lohse) who immediately understands his way of thinking. Bruno falls in love. Everything would be fine if only his newly found soulmate did not have to move on so soon. Bruno does not have much time to express his feelings.Written by
There is always a hint of romance mixed with pessimism in Erik's movie, sweet and sad at the same time. That's why I love his works. There are also a lot of fantastic film editing techniques shown in his movie. This short film, however in my opinion, has gone a bit too far in showing techniques. In a few occasions the director seem to employ sophisticatedly edited pieces just for the sake of showing how technical he can become. But what happens is the underlying plot, the smoothness of the story, and the soul of the movie become weakened / undermined.
Nevertheless I am a big fan of Erik after watching his 2 short movies (Nashorn; Forever Over) and I will continue following his new works!
