Berlin at night
26 February 2004 | by goviSee all my reviews

A flat in Berlin, a woman, a man, their newborn baby - seems like a harmless young family setting, really. But their relationship has become loveless, friends no longer come round as the woman constantly complains about, and all he does is read and write. His parents turn up for a visit, but remain wordless, rushing out of the place after 10 minutes. It's time to get out of the flat, the woman announces, and decides to go out with a friend- only the start of the night...

This film is based on a play by Jon Fosse, a Norwegian writer, who is very popular in Europe. If you enjoy theatre you'll probably enjoy this film, if you don't, you could easily get bored as 95% of the film is set in the flat of the young couple.
