German MOVIE: A Coffee in Berlin

They announced a movie that will be shown for a week at one of the Landmark Theatres in Seattle (Review and description below)


! Worth seeking out!”—Neil Smith, TOTAL FILM
“A wry, delightfully unforced comedy with a sure grasp of character and setting…
Tom Schilling is exceptionally appealing.”—Sheri Linden, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
Writer/director Jan Ole Gerster’s wry and vibrant feature debut, which swept the 2013 German Film Academy Awards, paints a day in the life of Niko (Tom Schilling, GENERATION WAR), a charming 27-year-old slacker guy going nowhere fast. During a single fateful day in Berlin Niko drifts aimlessly through a series of amusing encounters with oddball characters. His girlfriend rebuffs him, his father—fi nally discovering that Niko dropped out of law school two years ago—cuts off his allowance, and a strange psychiatrist dubiously confi rms his “emotional imbalance.” Niko runs into a former classmate (Katharina Schüttler) who insists she bears no hard feelings for his grade-school taunts when he called her “Roly Poly Julia,” although it becomes increasingly apparent that she has unfi nished business with him. Shot in timeless black and white and enriched with a snappy jazz soundtrack, this slacker dramedy is a love letter to Berlin, which has seldom looked more mysterious and romantic, and to the Generation Y experience. Also known as OH BOY. Winner of the European Film Award for European Discovery of the Year. (Germany, 2012)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
