Qualität muss sein!
THIS YEARS CROP OF GERMAN FILMS.
Tom Tykwer's modern love triangle consisting of a married couple, who independently of each other fall in love with the same man. A German doctor, who cures sleeping sickness in Africa, while his wife and daughter have returned to their home country. A chilled love affair between a young woman and her husband's significantly older boss, and a pregnancy story with the dimensions of a medical novel. These components go, if not hand in hand, then at least in highly successful genre-transgressing formations in this year's German festival crop.
PRESENTED IN COLLABORATION WITH:
GOETHE-INSTITUT & GERMAN FILMS
On Friday April 15, PIX and the Goethe Institute present a cornucopia of German films, when we begin in the afternoon with a brutal play for power in Christoph Hochhäusler's 'The City Below' followed by Ulrich Köhler's African tale 'Sleeping Sickness', which poses difficult questions about the aid industry. Before the last film of the day, Tom Tykwer's modern day love triangle, 'Drei', the German Embassy to Denmark treats us to beer and pretzels.
