Synopsis

A fateful day pushes an aimless college dropout (Tom Schilling) to stop wasting his time and finally engage with life.

Our Take

7.2
Rini

A black and white movie, A Coffee in Berlin is an early Woody Allen reminiscent film with a great emphasis on the emotions it handles.  It flows naturally, telling the story of Niko, a young college dropout in a period of his life where he has to face loneliness and lack of money and success. He goes from observing the people of Berlin to first realizing he is becoming a stranger to them and then lastly deciding to do something about his life. It’s a whimsical German film with a lot of heart, as much of a tribute to youth as it is a tribute to the city of Berlin.

This leaves me an impression that something so obvious could be so unobvious.
