Thoughts on Berlin, I Love You
Thoughts – Berlin I Love You brings us a series of stories about love in Berlin, each one will find people who are not enjoying parts of their lives in the city, meeting someone who still believes in the magic of the city. The stories do get trimmed down to the levels where they could have seen things get deeper in the conversations and love side of the film. We do have an all-star cast that will bring us their best for their scenes, knowing they only have to commit to a couple of scenes, rather than a whole feature. We will get a few serious moments around the film that address the weaknesses going on with the characters in their lives. Berlin is used as the backdrop for this film, where we get to see just how beautiful the city is, with the stories that could come around for everyone.
Final Thoughts – Berlin, I Love You is a great look at how love can be everywhere in life, you just need to find it.
