Darling Berlin’s latest darling “Beat Beat Heart” by director and screenwriter Luise Brinkmann is starting in cinemas all over Germany on April, 27! And this is a movie that’s definitely not to be missed this spring!
The highly acclaimed movie (at Filmfest Munich, Max-Ophüls-Preis, Slamdance and others) tells the story of Kerstin, who is daydreaming her way out of a broken heart, when suddenly her mother, Charlotte, rings at her door, needing a place to stay. For mom has accidentally broken up with her common-law spouse and does not know where else to go now. Both women handle their yearning completely differently, when Kerstin‛s housemate convinces Charlotte to start dating men, via app. So, mom brings different men to the house, while Kerstin‛s daydreams are consistently interrupted by the reality that love has become a hopeless place for modern age dreamers.
