From director of Run Lola Run, Heaven, The International, and Perfume: The Story of a Murderer comes his next feature, Drei (or translated as Three). This is Tom Tykwer‘s return to a German-language film, and unfortunately I missed its debut at Toronto International Film Festival, but I’m highly anticipating checking it out. We posted a few stills for the film awhile back, but not much buzz has come out. The cast is made up mostly of reputable German actors, including Sophie Rois, Devid Striesow, and Sebastian Schipper. Check out the trailer below thanks to Quiet Earth (via /Film). Unfortunately it isn’t subtitled, but you can check out the visuals if you don’t know the language.
Synopsis: THREE is about Hanna and Simon, a couple in their early forties who lives together in Berlin. Unknown to each other they both become acquainted with Adam, a younger man – and fall in love with him. When Hanna becomes pregnant, their whistle gets blown – and the question pops up: Who is the father? THREE is a tragicomical movie about love, morals and the sexes in a late-modernist German society at the mercy of its mixed feelings.
Drei will hit theaters December 23rd, 2010 in Germany and likely stateside next year.
