Life is all you get will be screening for free in London.
"Das Leben Ist Eine Baustelle' is a prize winner at several major festivals in its native Germany, including a special award at the Berlin International Film Festival for writer and director Wolfgang Becker "for its genuine and ironic portrayal of the changes taking place in present-day Berlin and modern Germany".
The political and social upheaval of the reunification of Germany provides the backdrop for this romantic and enjoyable comedy-drama.
The lead actor, Jan, is a young slaughterhouse worker who doesn't like to work much more than is necessary in order to keep his job.
One night he is walking home through Berlin when he finds himself strolling into the middle of a street riot. He sees a woman named Vera trying to get away from a pair of cops; Ian intervenes.. and this will change his life.
Unfolding against a changing Berlin in the middle of being reconstructed after the fall of the wall, Life Is All You Get focuses on `ordinary' people and their problems, as they struggle to cope in an increasingly directionless new world. Fantastic deadpan humour, hidden sites of the German metroplis and its realistic scenes of genuine human compassion make for a delightful modern German comedy. Just wonderful to watch!
In German with English subtitles. Free Screening.
