Trivia

The guy who played the barkeeper at the club is in real life a good friend of director Sebastian Schipper. He selected the piano play for the coffee shop scene and taught Laia Costa how to play the piece or how to move her fingers because as a matter a fact she is not playing it by herself. See more »

Goofs

When Sonne come in Victoria's coffee shop, right after he puts the bike aside, he gets confused and says "what a nice hotel" but quickly fixes himself to "nice coffee", followed with mutual laugh of both of them (hinting for the hotel at the end of the film). See more »

Best Movie Of 2015 (so far)
3 September 2015 | by megasmartdaniSee all my reviews

This is the first time ever I am writing a review on the IMDb, I just feel the need to do so because it seems like the movie does not get the attention it deserves, especially on a international level, but in Germany as well. But holy ... moly (boo you IMDb and your censorship) would it deserve that attention. The concept of using a one shot technique really works with this film. Pretty soon you become sure, that you are a part of the group and witness the events first hand, thus it is one of the most intensive movie going experiences you can have, I am saying this, as somebody who has seen "Gone Girl", "Rush", "Birdman" all these great intense blockbusters, but this movie really takes it to the next level. There have been quite a lot reports of movie goers who had to leave the cinema and I thought this had been due to the shaky cam, but the cam is actually led quite sturdy. The movie just drags you into the action, that some of it is hard to witness (even though there is no over the top violence or nudity scenes) It has been called the best German movie since "Run Lola Run" and as a matter of fact it is, even better, it does not even need any Nazi or DDR references, all it needs is a solid script with (especially in the getting-to-know-each-other-scenes between Sonne and Victoria) funny dialogue, a really great cast (most notably Frederick Lau and Laia Costa), a great subtle soundtrack and a very capable director who could pull this cinematic masterpiece of. It is very unfortunate, that there was no possibility of nominating it for the Oscars because 80- 90% of the conversations are held in English (English with a strong Berlin or Spanish accent, but still English). Yet the movie has all the potential to become a classic.

10/10, both thumbs up
